“I have the best job in the world”
Kevin Shufflebotham, President and CEO of the Medicine Hat College since April 2019, bowled us over with his enjoyment of living in the Medicine Hat community and his commitment to the College staff and students.
Shortly after starting at the College, a strategic planning process was undertaken, involving all stakeholders and exemplifying Kevin’s vision to plan WITH stakeholders, working as a collective. The most important stakeholders? The students.
The College has five exciting priorities:
  • New program development
  • Offering ‘high flex’ learning
  • To offer own degrees
  • Expanding the cultural centre, development a stimulating space for students and expanding the fitness centre which will be open to the public
  • An Innovation Centre which will connect industry, faculty and students to solve problems
After the exploration of alternatives, the MHC Board has decided, for a number of good reasons, that the College will remain a Comprehensive Community College, rather than becoming a Polytechnic or a University.
Kevin fielded a number of questions and was then thanked by Dave.
