Vancouver Island University Must Explain Why It Is Suspending Elder College Operations

VIU is suspending its support for Elder College as of December 31.

So says a report from CHEK News as reported by Nanaimo.net.

The headline reads :

‘VIU cuts ElderCollege support after 30 years, cites ‘current financial position’

The report goes on to say:

‘VIU’s ElderCollege has over 3,000 students and teachers and offers about 90 courses a semester.’

Interestingly the report states

‘VIU isn’t saying what the savings are by cutting ElderCollege, but Peterson (Elder College Board Chair) says the teachers are volunteers and students pay for courses.
