Students with the Nunavut Arctic College Environmental Technology Program visited the Canadian Coast Guard Ship CCGS Henry Larsen last month. Our thanks to the crew of the CCGS Henry Larsen for providing the students with the opportunity to tour the ship.
The Environmental Technology Program's 2011/2012 academic year is off to a great start.
Classes began on September 6 with two full classes of students. September’s first year intake was a maximum 16 students, and 14 second year students returned as well. However, not only do we have a lot of students, we have a lot of enthusiastic students. Energy, excitement, and pride flow from staff and students alike, and are palpable as you walk around the program’s new building.
Nunavut Arctic College’s Environmental Technology Program students were once again on the land, from September 21 – 28, for their fall field camps. This year’s camps were also once again located on the beach at Peterhead Inlet, a popular local camping area with an incredible tidal flat and interesting geological and historical sites.
Dear Friends and Colleagues:
In response to numerous inquiries from family and friends, we wish to inform you of two funds that have been established in memory of our dear colleague and friend, Marty Bergmann.
