Incoming Aurora president discusses plans for transformation: Interview

In a recent interview with Cabin Radio, Angela James–who will become president of Aurora College in August–discusses her plans as the institution transforms into a university by 2025. James shares that she will advance the visions and goals outlined in the new 10-year postsecondary education strategic framework and continue development on new programming. She discusses the proposed Tin Can Hill campus, which she says is waiting on an environmental assessment of the location, as well as the new programs that the college is considering. James also notes that as the institution transforms, the renaming process must be guided by engagement and collaboration. While James will be based in Yellowknife, she says that she will spend regular time at the Fort Smith Thebacha campus and the Aurora Inuvik campus.
