COVID-19 Information | RDC’s plan to deliver quality education this fall

What is a comprehensive regional teaching university?

Comprehensive regional teaching universities offer a range of credentials – from certificates to autonomous degrees – in professional, career-focused programs in the arts, creative arts, social and related behavioral sciences, health & wellness, business, engineering, education and trades and technology. This model engages students in active, applied learning and research essential to the future of society, business and industry.

RDC wanted to evolve in to a comprehensive regional teaching university because it would allow us to continue offering a full spectrum of credentials including apprenticeship, trades and technology, certificates and diplomas, as well as degrees that meet the demand in our region. This university model best serves the educational needs of central Alberta learners. Simply, we will do everything we do now, plus grant our own degrees. The term “university” is equally important as it signals credibility, prestige and autonomy for degree level programs.
