Goderich Fanshawe Campus Exceeds 200 Students

Goderich | by Peter Jackson  

Academic Services Consultant says over 200 students have taken courses at Goderich campus, since opening in 2016.

Over 200 students have taken courses at Fanshawe College's Goderich campus in just the past three years.

The facility opened in the spring of 2016, and officials have reported its progress on the third anniversary of its opening.

Fanshawe Academic Services Consultant Heather MacKenzie-Card tells Country 104.9 News that locally-based faculty have helped make the site successful.

She adds that the broader community in Goderich has made Fanshawe feel welcome.

MacKenzie-Card says that for many years there had been a need for post-secondary education in the Goderich area, and the site on St. David Street fills the role well.

The school is looking to expand its Goderich base, which offers a business management and entrepreneurship program.

MacKenzie-Card says this fall Fanshawe Goderich looks to expand its skilled trades program, and will start a carpentry and renovation techniques program at Central Huron Secondary School in Clinton this fall.

She also mentions that the Goderich campus live-streams classes in several programs and hopes to connect with Saugeen Shores, with a live stream of its business program.

MacKenzie-Card and Fanshawe Manager of Access Studies John Mombourquette appeared before Goderich Town Council recently.
