Aurora College is the public college of the Northwest Territories,established as a Board-governed corporation by the Public Colleges Act. Our mandate is to deliver a broad spectrum of adult and post-secondary programs to meet the needs of individuals, communities and the labour market. Through the Aurora Research Institute, we are also responsible for scientific research activity and innovation that responds to Northern priorities. Committed to excellence, we serve the college mission: Aurora College is dedicated to excellence, leadership and innovation in Northern education and research.
Adult and post secondary education in the NWT has always been guided by values grounded in Northern experience and by an evolving sense of what is possible. Three core values express Aurora College’s philosophy of education: respect for the diverse needs of our communities, excellence in all aspects of college activity and access to our programs and services.
Corporate Management is mandated to manage the daily operations of the College, pursue its missions and vision, and develop and implement a strategic plan to ensure the long term success of the College..
This is our third strategic plan. Our first two strategic plans, which we called corporate plans, laid the foundations and set the direction for our development to date. Recognizing that we are a maturing institution, we have chosen to extend the time frame for the new plan to ten years instead of five and to formally call it a strategic plan.
