Camosun expresses its sorrow and stands alongside the Tk’emlúps te Secwepemc

Camosun College is horrified by the news that the remains of 215 children have been found in the grounds of the former Kamloops Residential School, which sat on the traditional territory of the Tk’emlúps te Secwepemc. Our hearts go out to the families and communities who were and are directly affected by this news and by the original loss of their children. We are all affected. This affirms Camosun’s commitment to redressing the impact of our shared history. In memory of these children, Camosun flags on both campuses will be lowered.

Search Process

Camosun College is initiating the process of searching for the college’s next President. Camosun is looking for an inspiring and inclusive President who understands and respects the importance of the college’s mission and values.

The search for Camosun’s next President will be conducted by the Camosun College Board of Governors with Leaders International, a leading Canadian executive search firm. While candidate confidentiality is of utmost importance to a successful search process, we are committed to transparency and will keep the Camosun community informed as to the progress of the President search.
