RDC currently offers collaboration degrees with other institutions, why don’t you just keep doing that?
Collaboration has definitely had advantages for our students, most notably access to degrees. Nevertheless, degree content and outcomes are set by the degree granting partner and RDC has not been unable to tailor these university programs to respond more specifically to our regional needs. In addition, we have no meaningful influence over the future direction of these programs or even if the programs will still be offered. We also lack the autonomy to increase the number of degree completion opportunities in central Alberta.
So while the current collaboration degrees are excellent options for many of our students, we have consistently heard from our communities that RDC needs to be able to offer our own degrees, tailored to meet the needs of central Alberta and our learners.
