This fall the College welcomed 700 new students to its Cornwall campus. A total of 1,200 students will be taking classes on campus this semester, with 500 of those being international students, making the campus a richly diverse environment.

“The energy and excitement on campus is inspiring and on behalf of the SLC team, I congratulate all learners starting their academic journey,” said SLC President and CEO, Glenn Vollebregt.

“SLC is a community where everyone belongs. We are committed to providing a learning, working, and general environment where everyone feels welcome, and can learn, work, or enjoy SLC while being free from discrimination. We do this by holding ourselves to high standards of equity, diversity, and inclusion while also increasing education and awareness; I am excited to meet our students and learn from their diverse backgrounds and experiences.”

SLC also has an amazing number of services, resources, and options available to all students to ensure student success, according to Vollebregt.

“From wellness and mental health counselling and resources to education and awareness about sexual violence and prevention, we can all be equipped to help, to speak up, or to act as an ally for someone who needs it,” he said. “The college continues to evolve, whether in terms of program offerings, or growing the ways we connect with community and we are excited for another great year of learning and innovation.”

A wide variety of programs are available on the Cornwall campus, including accounting, marketing, and human resources as well as general arts and sciences, police foundations, its own stand-alone Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree, practical nursing, personal support worker, and early childhood education. Technical and skilled trades programs are available in carpentry, welding, computer technology, and game programming. Programs in environmental technology, supply chain management, game programming, and paramedic are unique to the Cornwall campus.

SLC+, the College’s Continuing Education and Corporate Training opportunities, offers a collection of learning opportunities that extend beyond traditional academic programming, including upskilling or reskilling with a micro credential, pursuing a new interest, or driving business innovation.
