FORT ST. JOHN – Justice Institute of British Columbia (JIBC) and Northern Lights College (NLC) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to enhance educational opportunities for students at both institutions.

Under the MOU signed on July 3, JIBC and NLC will explore opportunities to facilitate the transfer of students between the institutions and actively explore new pathways for students to complete their credentials.

For example, dual admission processes will be pursued that provide options for NLC students to complete bachelor’s degrees in Law Enforcement Studies and Public Safety Administration at JIBC after taking the first two years of their studies at NLC.

Both institutions will aim to complement and support each other’s courses and programs and develop new ones that could be delivered in partnership that support the needs of industry and the communities in the region.

“We are pleased to build on and strengthen our relationship with Northern Lights College to best serve the needs of students, communities, and industry,” said Dr. Laureen Styles, JIBC Vice-President, Academic. “This memorandum signals our institutional commitment to create new educational options for students in the context of NLC’s regional focus and JIBC’s provincial mandate.”

“This agreement creates amazing opportunities to develop new and intriguing career pathways for students in northern British Columbia, and throughout the province. The concept of dual admission is an exciting prospect, and NLC is pleased to work with JIBC to explore various opportunities for collaboration that will help students access the training and education to achieve their career goals,” said Dr. Peter Nunoda, Vice President Academic and Research, at NLC.
