Yellowhead Tribal College to Be Anchor Tenant at the Orange Hub
July 27, 2018
Yellowhead Tribal College (YTC) is excited to announce that as of August 7, 2018, YTC will be an anchor tenant at the Orange Hub, formerly the MacEwan West Campus, and that all programming from Fall 2018 onwards will be offered from our new facility at 10045 - 156 Street.
YTC is Edmonton's only Indigenous post-secondary education institution. The College offers post-secondary courses and certificates, diplomas, and degrees, as well as academic upgrading and continuing education. YTC is open to all students from all backgrounds, and offers accredited and transferable coursework in a flexible, supportive academic environment, grounded in Indigenous knowledges, cultures, and traditions.
The College was founded in 1986 in Spruce Grove, Alberta, with the vision to meet the educational needs of its Yellowhead Tribal Council members. Due to growth in program offerings and student population, YTC moved to west Edmonton in 1994. After 24 years in our current location, YTC is moving operations to the Orange Hub to accommodate increased enrollment, to allow for expanded programming, to facilitate easier access by transit and for people with disabilities, and to inhabit a building that is purpose-built for education.
Securing the space and the terms for this major relocation was made possible through four years of persistence and dedicated efforts by the staff at YTC and Yellowhead Tribal Council and our Chiefs and four member communities, as well as through facilitation and consultation by Manasc Isaac Architects and with assistance and support from the City of Edmonton, including Mayor Don Iveson.
Yellowhead Tribal College operates under the direction of the Yellowhead Tribal Council, of which Alexander First Nation, Alexis Nakota Sioux Nation, Sunchild First Nation, and O'Chiese First Nation are members.
