Yukon College contributes significantly to the development of a healthy and prosperous north through relevant, innovative and inclusive education and research. The College serves 1,100 full and part time credit students and over 4,400 non-credit students each year. The student body includes 100 full time international students and nearly 30% of all students identify as First Nation. Yukon College operates 13 campuses across the Yukon, including the beautiful main campus in Whitehorse.
With a $46 million operating budget, supported by 270 full time and 310 part time faculty and staff, Yukon College is a major contributor to the economic and social fabric of the Yukon. Student surveys have found extremely strong support from the student body. In 2016, 96% of student respondents were satisfied with the quality of instruction at YC, and 98% agreed that “Yukon College is a good learning environment”.
Yukon College continues to lead the country in research conducted by community colleges. YC ranked first among all colleges in Canada for research intensity, and third and fifth respectively for research funding and partnerships, according to Canada’s Top 50 Research Colleges by Research Infosource Inc. Expanding northern research and innovation is one of Yukon College’s five strategic directions.
An exciting evolution is also underway at Yukon College. With the support of the Yukon Government, the College began preparations a few years ago to move to become a University. The transition, expected to take place in 2019, will create Yukon University (YU), a flexible, post-secondary institution that includes a place and a pathway for every learner, including: adult basic education and upgrading, trades and vocational training certificates and diplomas or degree and post-graduate programs.
The opportunity now exists for a new Registrar and Dean of Enrolment Services to join the leadership team of Yukon College at an exciting and dynamic time. The Registrar and Dean of Enrolment Services will oversee a team of staff responsible for admissions, recruitment, international students, and student services. Reporting to the Vice President Academic, the Registrar will play a leadership role in the institution’s transition to a University and ensure the department is providing exceptional customer service to students and faculty in advancing the needs of Yukon College.
The ideal candidate will bring a track record of success in leadership roles within a registrar’s office or student services unit in a post-secondary institution. With an understanding of best practices in a variety of related areas, the new Registrar and Dean of Enrolment Services will bring the credibility and insight needed to take the department to the next level for students, faculty and the College.
