Town of Stettler and Campus Alberta Central have signed a three-year memorandum of agreement to collaborate in the development of post-secondary learning opportunities through the support of a Campus Alberta Central engagement site.

“They feel it’s very important to develop their relationship with the community,” said Rob Stoutenberg, town CAO.

“In the past, it’s always been an arm’s length group but council expressed an interest in our strategic discussion in January.”

According to the agreement, it will be Stettler’s role to encourage and continue to build a culture of learning in an environment of collaboration to support learner focused education, provide input and feedback on learning needs in the community through participation in informational meetings held by Campus Alberta Central and provide a representative from the town to sit on a post-secondary advisory committee.

Meanwhile, Campus Alberta Central will provide post-secondary programs and courses using technology in collaboration with other local educational entities, sustainable learning opportunities through alliances with the town council and other community groups to further cultivate “value added” learning to the community, and advice on reporting mechanisms that may increase understanding of the learning opportunities and the value of the extended learning to the community.

Moreover, Campus Alberta Central will make available both an annual community report and a broader Campus Alberta Central regional report to the mayor and council, an annual one day, set up face-to-face conference for all Mayors of towns that have Campus Alberta Central sites to update information, seek input and share ideas on collaboration and increasing learning opportunities within Central Alberta, and provide on-going feedback to the communities via a projected subscribed website.

“It’s a very appropriate agreement,” concluded Stoutenberg.
