Aurora College and Polytechnic University Governance
What is this engagement about?
As part of the transformation of Aurora College into a polytechnic university, the Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) committed to establishing a new governance system for the institution. In order to support input from Indigenous governments and key stakeholders, the GNWT has drafted a discussion paper that describes a proposed governance system and how it will help ensure an effective, efficient and sustainable Aurora College and polytechnic university that are able to operate at arm’s length from government.

How will my input make a difference?
The transformation of Aurora College into a polytechnic university is a multi-year process and there will be multiple opportunities to provide input. Feedback on a proposed governance system for Aurora College and the polytechnic university will help to inform decisions around the roles, authority and structure of the Board of Governors. However, as these changes are made through a legislative process there will be additional opportunities to provide input on this matter moving forward.
