GeoCentre Community Campaign
Recognizing the pressing need for more environmental graduates equipped to hit-the-ground-running as hands-on, team players, Fleming College is realizing a bold plan to renovate and expand the east wing of the Frost Campus and inject urgently-needed funds in SENRS program innovation and student support.
This new “GeoCentre” will support students in programs including earth resources technician, advanced water systems operations and management, aquaculture, environmental technician/technology, forestry technician, sustainable agriculture, and resources drilling technician.
In 2016, the federal and provincial governments committed $2.26 million in infrastructure funding for this project. The College made a further commitment to support construction with the remaining capital, programming, and student support funding to come from our community. We are looking to our community to raise funds:
- to construct and outfit high-tech, applied learning spaces for students in SENRS's programs - $1,000,000
- to enhance the School's hands-on programming capacity with more workshops, field trips and opportunities for students to partner with local organizations and offer novel solutions to real-world environmental problems - $250,000
- to attract more students with scholarships to recognize top performance and bursaries to aid students in financial need - $250,000
FUNDRAISING GOAL: $1,500,000
