As well as providing information and advice on programs at St. John’s Campus and at Grenfell, the LI is actively involved in promoting education taking place in Labrador. This includes the 4 year Inuit Bachelor of Social Work program which concluded in June 2013, an Inuit Bachelor of Education program beginning in September 2014, and annual intersession courses and occasional graduate courses.
An educational needs assessment was conducted by the Labrador Institute in 2012-2013. The purpose of this project was to begin to identify the post-secondary education needs within Labrador, to inform the Labrador Institute of the efforts it can pursue in order to support these needs and provide guidance for future program offerings in Labrador.
Data for this study was gathered from High School students and Comprehensive Arts and Science Transfer: College-University students in Labrador. The project was carried out with the assistance of the Centre for Institutional Analysis and Planning (CIAP), Memorial University. The Educational Needs Assessment Report was completed in July 2013.
