The Inuit Studies program will continue to be offered as part of the regular Nunavut Arctic College (NAC) curriculum in Fall 2017, and will provide an ongoing program that reflects traditional and contemporary Inuit values, practices and knowledge.
NAC’s logo is well known and liked. However, after 20 years it didn’t work well in certain formats. Instead of designing a new one, NAC simply refreshed the original logo to make it work better in print and online.
The image includes four design items: blue sky, snowy owl, sun rays, water and ice pans. The bright blue and white represents the outdoor colours found throughout the Arctic: blue for the sky and water, and white for snow and ice.
The new shape around it is more active, youthful and up to date. The College also created different language versions to better represent the four official languages of Nunavut: Inuktitut, English, Inuinnaqtun and French.
A new toolkit with NAC logos for downloading can be found at http://arcticcollege.ca/NAC_Logos/Logo_Toolkit.pdf
NAC partners with University of Saskatchewan (U of S) to offer a four-year law degree in Iqaluit starting in September, 2017.
Nearly one-third of graduates attending Nunavut Sivuniksavut (NS) in Ottawa are now studying at Nunavut Arctic College, according to the NS Alumni Survey.
The Education Programs Division of Nunavut Arctic College is very pleased with the successful roll out of the Year 2 Diploma courses of the Early Childhood Education Program (ECEP) in Iqaluit.
