As part of the work of the President’s Office, regular newsletters are prepared and sent out to share the latest news, updates, note-worthy events and initiatives that are happening at NIC.
One of NIC’s strengths and challenges is the large geographic area we serve and our ability to be responsive to the needs of our communities. Providing regular updates to all faculty, support staff and the administration team allows us to celebrate the great work that’s being done across our campuses.
Student Housing Update
In July, NIC completed the Request for Proposals (RFP) process to select an architectural firm to undertake the preliminary design of the new student housing project for the Comox Valley campus. Dialog Design, a major national group with offices in Vancouver and other cities in Canada and the U.S. was the successful proponent.
The next steps in the design and development of the final business case for submission to the provincial government are:
September, Site Planning & Design Options Study
September-November, Schematic Indicative Design
November, Cost Estimation and Approval of Indicative Design
December, Submission to Provincial Government for approval
Diversity Matters Steering Committee
