Message from the Chair

Thank you for your interest in Northern Light College's Education Council.  My name is Rob-Roy Douglas and I am currently the Chair of the Education Council. 

Education Council and the College Board of Governors represent the two faces of institutional governance. As a  legally constituted body established under the College and Institute Act in 1995, Education Council sets educational policies and academic standards for curriculum and has an advisory role to the Board of Governors. Council membership is composed of a mixture of elected students, staff and college faculty and appointed administrators.

Education Council is an integral part of Northern Lights College operations; as such, it depends on the participation and engagement of our college community.  The Council approves programme completion guides and revisions to course outlines.  We also oversee the invaluable activities of Council sub-committees that review and propose changes to Curricula, Admissions Standards and College Policies.

Education Council lies at the heart of our academic institution and I strongly encourage everyone to engage with it and to consider joining our meetings. Our dedicated team works together to help our programmes and courses excel and to promote student success.

Please consider becoming a new member of Education Council. Positions regularly become available for students, faculty members, and support staff. Meetings are held on the 4th Wednesday of each month from 1:15 pm to 3:00 pm. If you have any questions regarding Education Council and membership, please contact myself or the Education Council secretary,  Audra Holloway.
