Some may be wondering why UCN is staying open during the current crisis. First and foremost, it is our job to train and educate students, conduct research and ensure our students and graduates have the knowledge and skills they need to help build a better society. This is important work. UCN has a proud tradition of delivering education and training opportunities to northern and Indigenous students. While we manage this world-wide emergency, along with everyone, we must remember that UCN’s business is educating students, and we remain dedicated to this business and our students. We are still open because we still have work to do. Keeping the facility open avoids more difficult decisions that may impact staff and students. Nevertheless, we are well aware that things are changing day by day.
UCN is keeping the most up to date information on the LATEST UPDATES page on the website. We have also compiled links to credible COVID-19 resources at this link: COVID-19 Resources.
