2016-17: It starts with you

August 25th, 2016

It is time.

After an absolutely amazing summer, Parkland College is ready for the 2016-17 academic year. This week is full of activity designed to get us off to a great start. Student and staff orientations, instructional workshops, and final facility preparations are just an example of some of the work that is being done to ensure our learners are provided with the very best educational programming.

Some programs are already underway and many others are set to begin within the next two weeks. Initial registration numbers are very positive with many of our programs at or near capacity. New and returning students from across our region, province, country — and also internationally — are arriving at our campuses ready to learn.

2016-17 will mark the first year of our newly developed strategic plan. I am happy to unveil to you our new vision, mission, and values that were developed through input from students, staff, and our stakeholders during the last part of the 2015-16 academic year.

Parkland College provides high quality learner centred education and training as a foundation for lifelong success. 

To be Saskatchewan’s leader in delivering high quality education and training.

At Parkland College, we value:

  • Innovation and continuous learning
  • Inclusiveness and diversity
  • Compassion and respect
  • Responsiveness and accountability

Full details of the plan will emerge throughout the year. We cannot wait to get started!
