Excellence Prevails at GPRC!
In this issue
Grande Prairie Regional College has wholeheartedly embraced the new Vision, Mission and Values statements. “All of you did such a good job of articulating who we are and what we do that the Board of Governors has not only endorsed these statements, it has established them as a “Governance Commitment” policy!” says Don Gnatiuk. The new policy passed at the October meeting of the Board. The PAC (People Advancing Change) committee has been working toward this final document for several months, and the input from throughout the institution has resulted in our mutual commitment to the following:

The members of the Executive Committee at GPRC regularily recognize employees and departments who have exhibited excellence in their jobs and careers. The following people and departments have recently been acknowledged in the Commendations Report presented to the Board of Governors by GPRC President, Don Gnatiuk:
A reminder that our college-wide Fall Open House is taking place on Wednesday, November 12th from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm. This is always a great oppportunity for GPRC to show it's stuff! Open House gives us all a chance to invite the community to our campus; showcase our programs and services; introduce our fantastic faculty and staff, and also to provide prospective students the opportunity to research educational opportunities at GPRC - gather program information, ask questions and get answers!
Some great incentives are available for potential students to take advantage of throughout the day. The $40 application fee is being waived for that day only and there is a draw for a $1000 Tuition Voucher. The popular scavenger hunt is on again, so be prepared to point excited young people in the direction they are looking for!
There are several departments and individuals at GPRC that consistently go all out for Halloween and this year was no exception. Kudos to all of you who really put in the time, effort and planning to pull off some awesome stunts this year including the Finance Department, Student Services and Theatre & Media Services to name a few.
An honourable mention goes to the ladies of Finance who staged a "Mock Wedding" and invited all staff & faculty to join them in celebrating the occasion for the bargain admission price of a toonie. Little did many of us know at the time that these funds were not the being used to offset the cost of the multitude of treats provided by the wedding party, but instead a mini-fundraiser for the Students Association's Room of Plenty. Congratulations for raising $158.72 in support of our students and demonstrating your generous GPRC spirit!
