Greetings and Welcome to Great Plains College!
This is a very exciting time for post-secondary education in Saskatchewan, and indeed, across the country. More than ever before, high-quality post-secondary education has become our best indicator of progress and our most important driver for economic growth. It is a particularly interesting time for regional colleges because programs in these institutions translate directly into employment in Saskatchewan’s vibrant labour market. This, in turn, creates success stories for our young people, and that is what will drive our economy forward in the future.
Great Plains College offers a full complement of programs ranging from Pre-12, Adult 12 and English language training to university studies, certificates and diplomas in health, business, community services, trades training and business development and safety training for industry. To complement program offerings, Great Plains College has developed a diverse student support and advising system to help students with academic choices, as well as a varsity athletics program including our competitive SunDogs volleyball teams. Great Plains operates six campuses and learning centres across the southwest region ranging from Maple Creek in the south to Warman in the north, with services in Whitecap Dakota First Nation. These programs and services add up to a relevant post-secondary education in a “small campus” atmosphere, and a rich and rewarding experience for students.
The time is right for a college education. I invite you to explore all that Great Plains College has to offer, and I look forward to seeing you on one of our campuses in the near future.
All the best,
Dr. David Keast
President & CEO
