A collaborative space used by students and faculty to incubate ideas will be included in Lethbridge College’s new trades and technologies facility, thanks to a $100,000 gift from The McCain Foundation, the college announced today.
“The McCain Foundation recognizes the vital role that education plays in contributing to the quality of life of families and individuals who live and work in communities across the country,” said The McCain Foundation chair Linda McCain. “We are pleased to support the new facility and are confident that it will enhance the reputation of Lethbridge College as a leader in trades and technologies education in this province.”
The McCain Foundation Simulation Collaboratory will be located in the college’s new facility. It will be a space shared across the college community and support programs through a variety of resources and activities. Students and staff will undertake initiatives that will respond to the college’s mission, the learning needs of students, staff, faculty, and to community and industry-specific issues. As the college works toward leading and transforming education in Alberta, the simulation collaboratory will help Lethbridge College inspire and facilitate learning to meet economic and social needs.
“The college community is so appreciative of the generous gift from The McCain Foundation and the opportunities it will provide us,” said Lethbridge College President and CEO Dr. Paula Burns. “While oriented to trades and technologies activities, this simulation collaboratory will support all of Lethbridge College’s programs in innovative ways.”
