Commitment to ongoing engagement sees a proposed Aurora College and polytechnic university governance model released for initial discussion
The Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) today released a discussion paper seeking input on a proposed governance model for Aurora College and the development of the governance system for the polytechnic university.
As part of the transformation of Aurora College into a polytechnic university, the GNWT committed to establishing a new governance model for the institution. The Aurora College and Polytechnic University Governance discussion paper presents a proposed model as a starting point for discussion with partners and key stakeholders.
The proposed governance system is significantly different from the one currently in place at Aurora College. This discussion paper is only the first in a series of engagements related to governance and one of many that will take place around transformation in the coming months and years.
As part of its ongoing engagement with partners and stakeholders, the GNWT is sharing the Aurora College and Polytechnic University Governance discussion paper with Indigenous Governments and key stakeholders for their input. Those interested in providing input are asked to do so by end of day on September 14, 2020.
“As part of the transformation of Aurora College into a polytechnic university, we are taking an active approach to engaging with partners and stakeholders in the early stages of developing a governance model. Working together to create a robust governance model is an essential step towards ensuring that Aurora College and the polytechnic university have the tools necessary to operate successfully at arm’s length from government. ”
– R.J. Simpson, Minister of Education, Culture and Employment
