Red Deer College to make name announcement

Public invited to Tuesday’s event

Red Deer College will share the next step in its journey to become a university with a special announcement Tuesday regarding the college’s new name.

In March 2018, RDC was given the green light to become a degree-granting institution, and the college has engaged with the community to determine a new name.

The college has lobbied for RDC to obtain the new status for about 10 years.

The announcement, to be made at 11:30 a.m. at Red Deer College Arts Centre, is open to the public.

Provincial and city representatives, Red Deer College’s board of governors and president and CEO Joel Ward will be in attendance.
