LETHBRIDGE: University of Lethbridge President Mike Mahon spoke at SACPA (Southern Alberta Council on Public Affairs) Thursday, going over what the future's expected to look like for post-secondary education.
He explained that institutions across Canada are full right now because of the baby boom in 1991, however he noted that in a few years they'll likely see a big drop in enrollment once those students are finished their education.
Mahon commented that they'll put a greater emphasis on recruitment, but want to still focus on keeping current students happy, as they will also spread that message and attract others.
He also stated that the U-of-L will start recruitment drives in places that they generally haven't looked at before.
Mahon added that they will start going after adult learners who want to come back to school, as they've seen huge enrollment increases for adults at the U-of-L's Calgary and Edmonton campuses.
