News release: VCC and JIBC pledge greater collaboration
Vancouver Community College (VCC) and Justice Institute of British Columbia (JIBC) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that aims to enhance educational opportunities for students in the Lower Mainland.
Under the MOU, VCC and JIBC pledge to work together to improve student access to education and enhance learner pathways. Both institutions will explore areas of mutual interest that will potentially lead to joint delivery of courses or programs, credential laddering, and joint credentials.
Based on the strengths of both institutions, specific areas of focus are planned to include programming for Aboriginal learners, and pathways for more diverse credential offerings for students who are upgrading or developing their English language skills. Inter-professional education activities will also be planned to further develop skills and abilities for effective team work.
