A collaborative program to bring education and training to Nisga’a at home in the Nass Valley will continue.

The Wilp Wilxo’oskwhl Nisga’a Institute (WWN Institute) and Northwest Community College (NWCC) renewed their agreement to collaborate in providing academic, vocational, and technical programs as well as continuing education for adult learners, announced the two institutions in a release June 4.

Through this agreement, NWCC and the WWN Institute wish to consider jointly developing and delivering programs and courses designed to preserve, protect, interpret and promote the history, language and culture of Nisga’a people, said the release.

With the oversight of a Joint Collaboration Committee, NWCC and the WWN Institute will plan programs, implement specific Nisga’a and First Nations curriculum, and develop dual credit, joint certificate, diploma and associate or applied degree programs, continued the release.

NWCC will also appoint the president and another member of the WWN Institute to sit on NWCC’s First Nations Council.
