NorQuest 50th Anniversary


For 50 years, NorQuest College has helped learners reach their educational goals. We offer learning that transforms lives and strengthens communities. Our growth over the last five decades reflects upon who we are today: The Edmonton region’s community college. Our diverse student population of approximately 10,200 students, 60% of whom are born outside of Canada, enjoy the wide selection of career and foundational programs we offer.

Throughout 2015, NorQuest College will celebrate 50 years of creating inclusive communities, and engage our students, faculty, staff, alumni, retirees, community, and friends through a wide range of events and activities designed to:

  • document, reflect on, and celebrate the accomplishments of the past 50 years
  • provide tangible evidence through personal experiences of the impact NorQuest has had on our communities
  • reinforce the link between NorQuest and the community at large

Our celebrations and activities will be anchored around 3 major cornerstones:

  1. Share - showcasing the past and current stories illustrating NorQuest's contributions through stories, reflections, and demonstrations
  2. Join - inviting the college and the community to celebrate the past, present, and future through events and activities
  3. Build - create opportunities to contribute and build a lasting impact
