St Lawrence College
St. Lawrence College is celebrating its 50th anniversary, along with the entire college sector. Their close-knit community includes 8,000 full-time students, more than 1000 staff, and, more than 85,000 people call themselves proud SLC alum. With their three friendly campuses in Brockville, Cornwall, and Kingston, SLC is proud to be an integral part of the economic life and social fabric of Eastern Ontario for the last 50 years. Prior to the formation of Ontario’s college system in 1967, some trade schools existed in the province. Many of those schools were established in the post-war years primarily to help veterans reintegrate into civilian life. By the late 1950s, tech wings were added to Ontario high schools to assist young people. A decade later, Premier William Davis—now regarded as the “father of the Ontario College System”—responded to an increasing need for technical education by creating colleges of applied arts and technology to train individuals for jobs. Originally, Brockville was suggested for the main campus of a proposed St. Lawrence College, but after much debate, during often “standing room only” meetings held at Brockville Town Hall, it was decided the local population wasn’t large enough to support one campus. Cornwall and Kingston were chosen to serve six counties in the Eastern Ontario region: Frontenac, Leeds, Grenville, Dundas, Stormont and Glengary. By its tenth year, St. Lawrence College was a strong and creative force, serving its communities and training graduates for their futures. Today, after close to 50 years in existence, the College continues to evolve to meet the needs of students seeking the skills that will lead to a better quality of life. With modern, expansive facilities in three vibrant eastern Ontario cities and a solid track record of excellence, St. Lawrence College still combines all the benefits of a world-class education with the advantages of small-town living and personal attention to detail.
They offer more than 100 full-time programs, and more than 900 online courses, including diplomas, degrees, certificates, post-graduate certificates, and more creating new online programs will ensure that students, both on and off campus, receive the digital fluency necessary in their future careers. That way, they can ensure their students are prepared for the careers of their dreams. They welcome students from across Canada and around the world. Moving forward they will continue to create new strategies to attract even higher numbers of international students to their campuses. International students enrich their classrooms and boost economic vibrancy in their communities. From their 8,000 students from across Canada and around the world, their more than 1,000 dedicated staff and faculty, and more than 85,000 alumni, St. Lawrence College and its people touch the lives of virtually all who live in their cities and surrounding communities.
With their continued focus on student success and academic excellence, St. Lawrence College has experienced strong enrolment growth, with the student population nearly doubling in the last decade. The College has also consistently ranked among the top three colleges in Ontario for graduate employment and employer satisfaction with their graduates. They are with their students during every step of their college experience, offering a multitude of services to ensure they are successful, including peer tutoring, counselling and accessibility services, support through Student Success Facilitators and the Math and Writing Centre, as well as services for Aboriginal and First Generation students.
