In an article for Simcoe, Georgian College President MaryLynn West-Moynes discusses the college’s plan to expand its growth by focusing on the international student market. West-Moynes points to data that indicates that the number of graduates from the region will not return to its previous level until 2031, and that in order to support the economy, Georgian must go beyond the domestic student population. Housing availability, a sense of belonging, and access to transportation and employment are key factors that are expected to affect Georgian’s ability to recruit international students. West-Moynes says that Georgian will be implementing an enrolment management strategy to examine current programs and future jobs, and that its board will support a $10M investment in digital innovation to ensure students gain the skills needed to succeed in their careers.
