A pair of Canadore College professors are leaving for T.A. Marryshow Community College in St. George’s, Grenada today to help with the grand opening of their new campus. The trip commemorates nearly three years of work that oversaw the development of comprehensive environmental sustainability practices and programming, including course curriculum design and syllabus development required to meet the requirements of the Grenada’s National Training Agency.
Canadore has also done extensive work with TAMCC executives and employees to develop stronger student services and marketing practices. Professors Derek Erickson and Samantha Hornell have been involved in the project since the very beginning.
Erickson says it’s exhilarating to see how the many moving parts of this partnership have come together. Erickson says he and his colleagues have thoroughly enjoyed working with the folks at TAMCC, and the people of Grenada. He says they are confident that the work they’ve put in will result in a world-class environmental program that will benefit everyone.
Erickson and Hornell will be arriving in Grenada this weekend to help install and train TAMCC employees on Canadore’s $60,000 equipment donation to the new campus, which ranges from safe drinking water technology to polarographic multi-meter probes and everything in between.
