Nunavut Arctic College appoints new board
Susan Ball, Susan Evyagotailak each to serve three-year terms
Nunavut Arctic College has appointed new members to its board of governors. They include Kivalliq representative Susan Ball, who was appointed this week to a three-year term, and Kitikmeot representative Susan Evyagotailak to a three-year term.
Ball and Evyagotailak both bring with them “a wealth of knowledge and expertise regarding the development and needs of education for Inuit, in particular their work as classroom teachers and principals across Nunavut schools,” the college said.
Other appointees include Larry Nalungiaq, appointed to a two-year term as student representatives on the board. Nalingiaq is currently studying in the college’s Nunavut Teacher Education Program at Kugaaruk’s community learning centre.
Current governor Rhoda Ungalaq was re-appointed to a three-year term on the board, while Jason Carpenter was re-appointed to a one-year-term as staff representative.
“I look forward to the board of governors making informed decisions and input in regards to the direction we are taking in Post-Secondary Education,” said the board’s chairperson Elizabeth Ryan, in a Feb. 23 release.
The NAC’s Board of Governors determines policies respecting the administration of the college, including the Nunavut Research Institute, and recommends priorities to Nunavut’s education minister.
