enrolment management targets, and position the College with respect to current and emerging social and economic conditions. Successful enrolment management is based on data-driven decision processes, which rely on accessible, accurate data. To this end, Langara is continuing to dedicate extensive resources to our data management architecture and information management systems. The College will also engage in a review of data governance practices to ensure that data integrity and reliability is maintained and improved where possible. These efforts will be supported by the implementation of Business Intelligence software that will allow enhanced access to analyses and forecasting, and measurement of progress against established targets. Langara is engaged in various academic initiatives with considerable positive effect. We continue to develop new programs at all credential levels. This year, Langara has implemented a cutting-edge Bioinformatics Diploma program and retooled our successful Engineering Transfer program. In Fall 2013 we will launch a fully redesigned Bachelor of Science in Nursing. The College’s emerging Teaching and Curriculum Development Center (TCDC) will enhance curriculum development and innovation by providing faculty with one-stop curriculum assistance. The TCDC will also be responsible for the college’s program review and renewal process, an important quality assurance activity. In addition, we have transitioned to a new Learning Management System (D2L) that enhances the College’s ability to support mobile technologies. The College continues to expand options for Langara students and graduates by entering into a number of domestic and international partnerships with other institutions. Agreements from previous years are bearing fruit: the first cohort of nurses from the INSCOL Academy in India completed a post-graduate certificate in Nursing Leadership and Management this year, and the first cohort of Langara BSN students undertook a clinical experience term through the Royal Academy of Nursing in Punjab, India. Looking forward, a new accord will allow qualified Langara Kinesiology graduates to ladder into Camosun’s popular Bachelor of Sports and Fitness Leadership program. Another new program targeted to Langara’s Aboriginal students will provide opportunities for qualified students to pursue a UBC Bachelor of Arts degree with scholarship assistance. Beginning this spring, Langara has agreed to serve as the Vancouver venue for the University of Northern British Columbia’s Masters in Business Administration program. Internationally, work with the University of Auckland has produced summer study prospects for Langara students in New Zealand, and we anticipate that dialogue between our institutions will generate further academic opportunities as we move forward. These activities underscore the College’s commitment to providing opportunities for learners.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
