“On behalf of Red Deer City Council and The City of Red Deer, I would like to congratulate Red Deer College (RDC) on being awarded degree-granting status,” said Red Deer Mayor Tara Veer.

“RDC’s leadership and staff are to be commended for their unyielding efforts over many years to meet the goal of offering degrees as part of their commitment to comprehensive, local access to post-secondary programming.

With this announcement, RDC can build on its already invaluable position as an excellent post-secondary institution that prepares its students for a successful future and enhances our community development. This accomplishment benefits all Central Albertans as it will help retain our local population. Central Albertans can now choose to complete their advanced education in Red Deer and stay in our community long-term, building our skilled labour force, enhancing and diversifying our regional economy, and increasing our innovation and collective knowledge.

We offer our gratitude to the Provincial Government for its support for this long awaited community endeavor, and to Red Deer College for its ongoing contribution to Red Deer and the Central Alberta region,” said Veer.
