Peterborough ON – (November 25, 2016) – With its focus on applied learning opportunities for students, Fleming College will officially open the new Spa + Clinic at Sutherland Campus on Monday, Nov. 28.

Operated by students in the Massage Therapy and Esthetician programs (and supervised by faculty), the Spa + Clinic at Fleming College offers therapeutic treatments and a full range of esthetic services to both the college community and the public.

Fleming’s School of Health and Wellness created the Spa + Clinic with the move of the Esthetician program to Sutherland Campus this fall. While the massage therapy clinic has been part of the campus for a number of years, it underwent renovations in summer 2016. The spa was developed adjacent to the clinic to co-locate the services in the A wing of the building. The new space is just over 4,400 square feet.

“The relocation of the Esthetician program to Peterborough offered an opportunity to create seamless therapeutic and wellness services at our Sutherland Campus,” said Carol Kelsey, Dean of the School of Health and Wellness. “The Spa + Clinic at Fleming College emulates a real practice environment, providing valuable applied learning experiences. The students can hone their business and soft skills as well as professionalism, thereby enhancing their employability.”

The opening takes place at 3:15 p.m. on Nov. 28 in the main foyer of Sutherland Campus with tours of the Spa + Clinic available to the public. Students will be demonstrating massage techniques and spa treatments during the opening.

Currently, students are providing massage treatments to the public while spa services will start in the new year.

The Spa + Clinic at Fleming College uses only top professional products for its full range of services. As part of the opening, the Spa + Clinic is offering a special incentive – book a full-service spa treatment in January and receive a free mini manicure. To book a service, visit flemingcollege.ca/spa-clinic or email spa-clinic@flemingcollege.ca.

carpentry-it-sligo

Multiple Fleming College programs eligible for international degree pathways within newly-signed MOU 

Peterborough, ON (Nov. 24, 2016) – Fleming College in Ontario, Canada has signed a comprehensive and ground-breaking memorandum of understanding (MOU) with IT Sligo in Ireland that provides pathways to a degree for 10 Fleming diploma programs.

For the first time ever at Fleming, Carpentry Technician students have a defined pathway to a degree. Eligible graduates can complete IT Sligo’s Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Advanced Wood and Sustainable Building Technology degree program or the BSc in Construction Project Management.

And, in another first for Fleming, eligible graduates of the Instrumentation and Control Engineering Technician program can go on to complete a Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) in Mechatronics.

“IT Sligo and Fleming believe that the changing economic environment is based on knowledge that is international in scope. These pathways acknowledge these changes and offer greater choice to our students to enter that flexible work environment. This MOU is also recognition of the quality of the diplomas offered at Fleming,” said Maxine Mann, Dean of the School of Trades and Technology and the School of Business.

Other pathways within the agreement include:

  • Environmental Technician/Technology, Ecosystem Management to BSc in Environmental Protection or BSc in Environmental Science
  • Early Childhood Education to BA in Early Childhood Care and Education
  • Social Service Worker to BA in Social Care Practice
  • Recreation and Leisure Services to Bachelor of Business in Recreation & Leisure
  • Computer Engineering Technician/Technology to BSc in Computing in Systems & Networking

Select IT Sligo degree programs offer online options for students, and most of the designated degree programs allow Fleming alumni to complete a degree with just one additional year of study or an honours degree with two further years of study.

The MOU also offers pathways to Fleming College for graduates of IT Sligo Higher Certificate programs, and lays the groundwork to develop opportunities for faculty and student exchanges, professional development, and distance education.

“I have talked personally with Fleming graduates who have gone on to complete degree programs in Ireland. They speak highly of the experience and confirm that their education at Fleming proved to be great preparation for the next stage in their education. I am certain that this agreement with IT Sligo will lead to similar success,” said Fleming College President Tony Tilly.

Agreement presents the first opportunity for Fleming Sporting Goods Business graduates to obtain a specialized degree in their field

 Peterborough, ON (Nov. 17, 2016) – Sporting Goods Business graduates of Fleming College in Ontario, Canada can now complete a degree in their field at Limerick Institute of Technology (LIT) in Ireland with just two additional years of study.

A new ‘2+2’ pathway between the two institutions allows eligible Sporting Goods Business graduates seamless entry into the third year of LIT’s Honours Bachelor of Arts in Business Studies with Sport Management program. Students can finish their diploma and degree in just four years.

“We’re excited to provide Sporting Goods Business students the opportunity to continue their studies after graduating from Fleming College,” said Charlie McGee, Coordinator of the Sporting Goods Business program at Fleming College. “This agreement will provide students the ability to work towards a university degree at LIT while gaining valuable international life experience. The combination of college and university education plus global experience can assist graduates with their career goal of working and progressing in the evolving international sporting goods industry.”

“The arrangement that Limerick Institute of Technology and Fleming College have brokered is a win-win deal for both institutions. More importantly, though, it is a win for the students in our programs,” said Clíona Campbell, LIT Director of International Affairs. “To the students here on the Sutherland Campus, it offers an opportunity for degree completion in Business Studies with Sports Management, which is good. What is better again is that we can offer exposure to the European business environment by presenting that opportunity for degree completion in Ireland. In an increasingly global business environment, it is hugely beneficial for graduates to broaden their horizons in this way. Naturally, our teaching and learning environment at home in Ireland benefits from that influx of new perspectives that the Fleming College alumni will bring to LIT.”

Fleming’s Sporting Goods Business program is unique in Canada. The two-year diploma program is on the cutting edge of sporting goods industry trends, ensuring graduates are prepared for the demands of the field. Students have the opportunity to meet and network with program alumni and take sporting goods industry specific classes combined with core business curriculum. Applied projects further provide real-world experience for students.

LIT’s Business Studies with Sports Management Honours BA is designed for individuals with a passion for sport who want to work in an exciting, dynamic global industry. Students learn about working with athletes and training for performance and health as well as develop leadership skills and an understanding of governance and sports development, marketing, sponsorship, finance, law, event management, economics, public relations, and human resource management. The program includes a placement component and has a number of professional links with sporting organizations such as Limerick FC, Munster Rugby, the Irish Sports Council and Coaching Ireland.

The pathway agreement is part of a larger memorandum of understanding signed between Fleming and Limerick IT that paves the way for future student and faculty exchanges, further degree completion opportunities, short-term field study/experience trips, joint classes and projects, and international internships or work placements.

New Sustainable Waste Management program unique in Ontario

City of Kawartha Lakes, ON (Nov. 10, 2016) – Fleming College’s School of Environmental and Natural Resource Sciences is launching a Sustainable Waste Management program, the only college program in Ontario that is focused on building advanced knowledge and skills in this sector.

Sustainable Waste Management is a two-semester graduate certificate program that will be delivered at Fleming’s Frost Campus in Lindsay, Ont. Through the program, students will learn to develop and implement waste management plans and strategies to reduce, reuse and repurpose waste. While the program focuses on solid waste management, it does include components that address hazardous waste management.

Incoming students are required to have an undergraduate degree or diploma in science, engineering, biology, ecology, environmental studies/sciences, GIS, or other related fields.

Course work will include projects with community partners. And students will gain further hands-on experience via 160 hours of field placement that will enable them to network with those in the industry and explore interests in the field.

Potential careers for graduates include working as a waste diversion specialist, waste management specialist/technician, recycling program coordinator, industrial waste reduction coordinator, waste reduction education program officer or a sustainability manager.

Fleming developed the program in response to a shift in waste management practices with a focus on waste as a resource. This includes the new Waste-Free Ontario Act, passed in 2016, which makes producers responsible for their waste management and diversion.

“We are excited to add this new program to our post-graduate certificate offerings at the School of Environmental and Natural Resource Sciences,” said Linda Skilton, Principal of Frost Campus and Dean of the School of Environmental and Natural Resource Sciences. “The need for this program has been identified by our industry partners and endorsed by professionals who are currently working in this field. We expect that this program will be in high demand and meet the needs of both current and future employers.”

Announcing the recipients of the Brian L. Desbiens Community Service Awards

Peterborough ON – (November 9, 2016) – Fleming College is pleased to recognize two individuals for their outstanding commitment to volunteerism with the Brian L. Desbiens Community Service Awards.

Community organizer and volunteer Sean Pennylegion of Haliburton will receive the external award while Mamdouh Mina, a part-time faculty member at Sutherland Campus, will receive the internal award. The awards will be presented at a special event later this month.

Sean Pennylegion is a long-time volunteer who devotes his time to musical and artistic events, environmental strategies, and education.

Mr. Pennylegion first became involved in the Haliburton community while attending the Ecotourism Management program at Fleming’s Haliburton Campus 16 years ago. His volunteer work encompasses organizations such as the Haliburton County Folk Society, the Highland Summer Festival, the Haliburton Art and Craft Festival, and the Hike Haliburton Festival. Mr. Pennylegion was also a member of the core committee that sponsored a Syrian refugee family to come to Haliburton, and he is now playing an active role in helping the family transition to their new life.

Mr. Pennylegion’s volunteer work extends to an international level. Along with his wife Gwen, he has regularly volunteered to teach English and music (for a month at a time) at a rural school near Siem Reip, Cambodia. Before their most recent trip, Mr. Pennylegion asked for small donations to buy ukuleles for the children at the school. He raised $2,500 and was able to not only buy the instruments but also a storage cabinet and meal plans for the students.

Described as friendly, caring and compassionate, Mr. Pennylegion’s nomination stated that he greets everyone with a big smile and is constantly looking for opportunities that will improve the quality of life for all.

 Mamdouh Mina is a part-time faculty member who teaches computer sciences at Sutherland Campus. He is also a student earning his MBA and a long-time community volunteer.

Mr. Mina has demonstrated extensive community service and volunteer involvement through his work with Big Brother Big Sisters and the New Canadians Centre. He has been a dedicated Big Brother for more than a decade, positively impacting the lives of local youth. As well, Mr. Mina has assisted with the integration of Syrian refugees into the Peterborough community. He has served as a volunteer translator and has provided the families with useful contacts and vital resources as they settle into their new life in Canada.

 Mr. Mina’s nomination stated that he continually participates in activities and causes that build a better community, helping countless people.

 

About the Brian L. Desbiens Community Service Awards

Within volunteer work and through their career these candidates have exceeded expectations, putting their ideas and skills to practical use for the benefit of others. One award is given to an employee of the college while another is awarded externally, to a citizen of the communities the college serves.

Fleming College campuses to receive funding for vital infrastructure upgrades

sif-group

Peterborough, ON (Nov. 7, 2016) – Fleming College’s Frost and Sutherland campuses will receive vital and necessary upgrades to classrooms and labs through infrastructure funding from the federal and provincial governments, it was announced today.

Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada, via the Post-Secondary Institutions Strategic Investment Fund (SIF), will provide Fleming College with $6.23 million to renew its health sciences facilities at Sutherland Campus. This will be combined with a $1.36 million contribution from the provincial government and $4.87 million in institutional funding from Fleming for a total project cost of $12,463,000.

SIF will further fund a renovation to the GeoCentre and environmental sciences area at Frost Campus. The federal government will contribute $2.26 million to that project with another $2.26 million funded by Fleming for a total cost of $4,520,500.

“We are pleased to welcome this funding announcement from our federal and provincial governments,” said Fleming College President Tony Tilly. “With the recent opening of the Kawartha Trades and Technology Centre and the Fleming Sport Complex, we are excited to embark on yet another project to further improve and enhance our learning spaces on campus.”

Renovations at the Sutherland Campus will include:

  • Renovation of eight classrooms and five labs/skills simulation centres.
  • Renewal of original classrooms that have little access to daylight or views.
  • Redesign of corridors and staircases that experience overcrowding, particularly in the area where students access public transportation.
  • New social study areas.
  • Renewal of IT infrastructure.

Learn more about the project at Sutherland Campus here.

Renovations at the Frost Campus will include:

  • Renovation and expansion of existing geoscience labs – two new geology labs, two new storage rooms, four new offices, and a realigned corridor.
  • Renovation of the existing fish hatchery lab/classroom into a dedicated classroom and adding two new environmental science labs.
  • The labs will feature state-of-the-art learning technologies and flexibility in design.
  • A secondary entrance will be added to the east wing, along with an elevator and ramp, to improve access and circulation.
  • New technology and AV infrastructure.

Learn more about the project at Frost here.

The projects will update building areas that are original to their construction in the 1970s.

“The current facilities limit the college’s capacity to create and deliver new programs or redesign existing programs to effectively meet quickly evolving labour market needs,” said Dr. Tilly.

The renovations also provide an opportunity for Fleming to significantly improve sustainability. Renewal of the buildings’ exterior envelope, cladding and roofing along with the installation of new lighting, mechanical and electrical systems will reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve energy efficiency.

Renovations will start immediately with expected completion in spring 2018.

New 2+2 diploma-degree pathway from Fleming College to School of Business at Trent University one-of-a-kind in Ontario

p18-img_0483-resize-2Peterborough, ON (Nov. 2, 2016) – Building on the long-standing relationship between Fleming College and Trent University, the two institutions have signed a new “2 + 2” pathway agreement that allows students to complete a diploma and degree in Business – Accounting in just four years – the first program of its kind in Ontario.

Graduates of Fleming’s two-year Accounting diploma program can now attain a Bachelor of Business Administration with a Specialization in Accounting from the School of Business at Trent University with just two further years of study. Eligible students will be admitted directly into the third year of the degree program and will not be required to take any additional bridging or reach-back courses.

This unique and seamless 2+2 partnership between a college and university is a one-of-a-kind in the province, providing students with the opportunity to live and study within the same community while obtaining their credentials.

“There is employment in this area across the spectrum – from diploma to degree – and this agreement provides our students with greater flexibility to address their personal learning and employment goals,” said Maxine Mann, Dean of Fleming College’s School of Business and the School of Trades and Technology.

“We’re excited about partnering with Fleming to create this new accounting pathway that affords students the opportunity to continue their CPA aspirations at Trent University,” added Dr. Kirk Collins, director of the School of Business at Trent University. “The new 2+2 program capitalizes on a long-standing relationship between the two institutions and will benefit students for years to come. We anticipate this learning pathway will be very popular and we look forward to welcoming Fleming students to our Accounting specialization in the School of Business.”

The Accounting program at Fleming teaches students to understand accounting principles applicable to various types of organizations, how to prepare and present financial statements, management accounting concepts, personal tax preparation, financial management, and the impact of external and internal factors on organizational operations.

Accounting is one of the many specializations offered through the School of Business at Trent University. At Trent, students have the ability to combine Finance, Accounting, Management, Entrepreneurship, Human Resources, Information Systems and E-Commerce with just about any other subject – arts or science. Trent students further have the opportunity to complete all CPA-PREP modules in preparation for professional accreditation.

Fleming and Trent recently signed a revised agreement that also allows graduates of Fleming’s Business Administration – Accounting program, a three-year advanced diploma, the option to complete a BBA with a Specialization in Accounting with just two further years of study.

Diploma-to-degree pathways have become a popular option for students who are seeking both an applied and theoretical education. The pathways often allow students to complete both credentials in less time and at a lower cost.

Fleming College and Trent University have a number of diploma-to-degree pathways available to eligible Fleming students. For more information, visit: http://flemingcollege.ca/education-pathways/trent-university
