South Campus programs scheduled to move
Following on news of the Alberta government’s decision to provide $30 million toward the new Centre for the Arts and Communications, MacEwan University is now announcing that all South Campus operations will be relocating to City Centre Campus in time for September 2014. The move will include all programming along with faculty, staff, and students.
Plans for the relocation have been in the works since 2011 and recently kicked into high gear in order to be ready for September 1. Three business programs are scheduled to move in advance of the September date. Business Management, Bachelor of Applied Business Administration – Accounting, and Accounting and Strategic Measurement will be moving for May 1.
The downtown campus strategy is part of the university’s strategic plan to bring all campus operations together in order to increase operational efficiencies and provide all students with the same level of academic programming, student resources and services.
After the move, City Centre Campus will be at a density similar to the period before the opening of the Robbins Health Learning Centre. The university is confident in its ability to accommodate this until further expansion at the City Centre Campus occurs. The new Centre for the Arts and Communications is slated to open in September 2017.
