$1 million of the $7 million Achieving Dreams Campaign goal will fund priority instruction equipment to help students become work ready.
Niagara College has more than 100 programs, many of which require ongoing investment for new or replacement equipment to provide hands-on applied learning, and meet professional standards and employers’ expectations.
Each year, the Ontario government provides about $350,000 to Niagara College for instructional equipment. However, annual requests from the academic program areas typically total more than $3 million for replacement and new equipment to keep programs competitive. This gap must be funded through donations.
