“SLC consistently scores above the provincial average for the graduate employment rate and the other KPI’s,” said Glenn Vollebregt, President and CEO, St. Lawrence College. “Not only do these scores show us what we’re doing right, they show us that our work is never done, and how we can improve our college services and programs to meet the needs of our students.”
Provincial KPIs are gathered annually by two independent research firms for the colleges, and for the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities.
