Deloitte report - Enabling Sustained Student Success
Support for students at risk in Ontario’s colleges
Many student at risk groups are from the fastest growing populations, such as First Nations and recent immigrants. The ability of these students to attain the required skills to succeed in the college environment and the economy of the future is dependent upon receiving significant non-academic support. Ontario’s public colleges see an opportunity, with greater support, to sustainably serve these groups as the province drives towards creating a knowledge based, innovative and inclusive economy. This report has aimed to highlight important opportunities for key stakeholders, including government and college administrators, to collaborate in order to address these challenges and prepare for the future.
