Camosun's Accountability Plan and Report is prepared each year in accordance with BC's Ministry of Advanced Education directives. Our report demonstrates our service to students and it shows how we are accountable to our community, meeting the economic needs of our region, and of the province.
Report highlights based on 2014-15 figures
Investing in Jobs; Aligning with In-Demand Occupations
With deep roots in applied learning and labour force development, Camosun is well positioned to contribute to the economy. Overall trades training spaces will exceed 2,300 seats when the new Trades Education and Innovation Complex opens.
The province predicts that by 2022, more than 78% of job openings will require some form of post-secondary education and training, and 44% will need skilled trades and technical workers. Camosun graduates are well-prepared and ready for new opportunities in healthcare, finance and accounting, trades, technology, and community services like early learning and care.
Investing in Program Quality, Performance, and Sustainability
Camosun's Program Review and Renewal process engages faculty in a peer-based review of programs and disciplines. Since the inception of Program Review and Renewal in 2001, 30 reviews have been completed, resulting in enhanced program quality, sustainability and learner experiences.
Investing in Student Success with Programs and Services
Eyēʔ Sqȃ’lewen—Good Heart, Good Mind, Good Feelings
Eyēʔ Sqȃ’lewen—the Centre for Indigenous Education and Community Connections—fosters Indigenous ways of knowing, being, doing and relating. Eyēʔ Sqȃ’lewen is a term offered to the college by Lkwungen Elder Elmer George. It references "good heart, good mind, good feelings"—the experiences we want students to have during their journey here.
B.C.'s target to increase the number of international students by 50 percent within the 2015/2016 period presents a financial opportunity to Camosun, but the greater benefits are the social, cultural and educational value of a globalized campus and a globally diversified college community.
