How can we attract\recruit good-quality academic studetns?
How can we keep¡support the same students to graduation?
How can we connect them with opportunities to stay beyond graduation?
Notes & Ideas
Attraction + retention
No provincial profile\consortium (NB) like EDU-NOVA .. too many schools ‘going it on their own’
Challenge around calibrating Eng + Fr recruitment efforts
Disconnect between university and college credit recognition
Keeping intl students to graduation
Student supports are essential (mandatory, for credit)
For francophone students, building up eng proficiency
Intl students feel like they need to be bilingual (FR\ENG) to stay
Keeping intl Students beyond graduation
Learning another language = a challenge
Trying to qualify for post-graduate work permit
Market Moncton\NB as an educ city\prov = branding
Build a NB educ. Consortium (build an atlantic educ. consortium?!!)
Invest in student supports (make them mandatory, for credit)
To address Fr\Eng bilingual reg, collaborate between Fr and Eng Schools on language instruction.
Open more IRCC offices across province
Greater collaboration between PSEC and GOVT on study (2-4 year) + work (PGWP) opportunities .. make process more seamless.
More (regular) meetings between PSEC + PETL + POP.Growth
