Selkirk College: Make your voice heard on higher education

Selkirk College is formulating a strategic plan to guide the college over the next five years, and they will be in Trail May 15 for input.

People are asked to lend their voice to the shaping of post secondary education in the West Kootenay.

Selkirk College is embarking on formulating a strategic plan to guide the college over the next five years, and they will be in Trail May 15 to gather input at a community open house.

Communities are key stakeholders in our college, said Selkirk president Angus Graeme in a press release.

“Communities … are the foundation upon which we’ve grown and the people we serve,” he said. “Help us remain relevant, responsive, and reflective of our communities’ needs.”

Imagine Selkirk suggestion boxes are available on each campus — including one in Trail — until the end of April.

People can answer these questions manually and place the suggestion slips in the boxes (for those who prefer pen and paper methods). For those who want to submit feedback online, your voice can be heard by answering questions in as little or as much detail as you like.

Selkirk representatives will be in Trail May 15 in the Muriel Griffiths Recital Room at 4 p.m. for input.

Members of the committee will assist with the consultation sessions as well as develop the strategic directions based on the feedback obtained.
