NIC seeks input on strategic plan

  • May. 11, 2015 3:00 p.m.

Join North Island College president John Bowman for a Community Town Hall meeting in the Comox Valley to discuss how NIC can better serve your community.

All NIC students, alumni, employees and community members are invited to provide input on NIC’s draft strategic priorities and Goals on Wednesday, May 13 from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the Stan Hagen Theatre at NIC’s Comox Valley campus.

“The information brought forward at these town hall meetings is essential to improving the lives of post-secondary students on Vancouver Island,” said Bowman. “NIC needs to hear from as many people and organizations as possible so we can carefully consider all ideas before the board of governors approves College Plan 2020 at the end of June.”

Over the past six months, NIC staff, administrators and faculty have created NIC Plan 2020, developing nine strategic priorities to shape how NIC delivers programs and services for the next five years.

“Throughout our planning process it was clear student success is at the centre of all we do – we want to hear your thoughts about how to best prepare students and communities for the future,” said Bowman.

Feedback can also be posted online at www.nic.bc.ca/NICPlan2020.
