What is UNBC up to?

Thursday, September 13th, 2007

Yesterday’s mail included a 72 page catalogue of UNBC’s new Continuing Studies offerings. They are typical college fare: courses in business, computing, languages, gardening, creative writing, snowmobile safety, belly dancing, squash, and so forth. Why on earth is UNBC duplicating the efforts of the College of New Caledonia’s long-standing and quite successful program? Faced with a budget deficit and having already laid off faculty, UNBC should be attending to its core functions, not poaching on CNC’s turf.
