Two post-secondary institutions in Brandon have partnered to enhance opportunities for students.

The collaborations between Brandon University (BU) and Assiniboine Community College (ACC) will enable students to explore new courses, research opportunities and ensure mobility between the two institutions.

“This agreement will expand opportunities for students and recognizes the role of education in fostering investment and economic growth in the Westman region,” said Dr. Gervan Fearon, BU president. “It also signals a significant direction for post-secondary education in the province. Collaboration among institutions is key to the future.”

The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) will enhance both programming and accessibility for more than 9,500 students enrolled each year in post-secondary education in Brandon and the surrounding area.
