"Creating education and training pathways accessible to any person that wishes to learn."
The Royal Alberta College (RAC) is an Indigenous backed, volunteer-based, non-partisan, not-for-profit, industry-led, post-secondary vocational training school. The school was created through the guidance, support and leadership of professionals from various occupations including survivors of residential schools and those that represent marginalized groups. The RAC offers accredited diploma programs, short-course certificates and career and life-skills training
The RAC mandate is to create education and training pathways that allow forward progress towards reconciliation by enabling equal access to affordable, accessible, high-quality education to any person that wishes to learn.
The process of enabling equal access to high-quality, affordable education has been created through the RAC’s core group of highly skilled professionals that volunteer their expertise to create programs in conjunction with industry leaders.
The Alberta Licensee has gathered a group of highly skilled individuals that will guide the College on a volunteer basis. The Board’s priority is to enable the mandate of the College, “Enabling equal access to affordable, high-quality, accessible education to all Canadians without barriers.”
These volunteers are termed as Governors and will provide their recommendations to the College, the president, admission and other staff on an as-needed basis for the best interest of the College and its learners.
These volunteers assure that the relationships with the institution’s president, The Alberta Licensee and the Government of Alberta (which occurs primarily through the Minister), serve to help the institution fulfill its mandate and obligations within the Alberta Post-Vocational Act (PVA).
