For many years, the Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College (CFBC) has signed several Memoranda of
Understanding (MOU) with various colleges and universities. An MOU is a formal document between
two or more parties which outlines a number of agreements beneficial to all involved. Most recently,
CFBC refreshed an MOU with Novia Scotia Community College.
This MOU refresh has led to increased
benefits for CFBC as Nova Scotia Community College will be offering faculty the opportunities to
augment their teaching skills through an Adult Education Foundation program that highlights new
technology and andragogy or new ways of teaching adult learners. We have also entered into new
MOUs with Keyano College and DeVry University.
While MOUs are not new to CFBC, Dr. Jacqueline Austin, CFBC President, credits her participation in the
Canadian Bureau of International Education’s mission to Canada in November 2019 as a contributing
factor. This mission involved a rigorous application and selection process after which Dr. Austin was
selected to visit Canadian colleges and universities to glean best practices.
The acquisition of these MOUs has resulted in opportunities for student and faculty exchange,
professional development, scholarships and 2 + 2 matriculation. These agreements offer significant cost
savings to our graduates and global and cultural exposure. As the educational landscape changes, it is
important that we evolve and offer a seamless approach to learning which the MOUs can facilitate.
CFBC is pleased to announce that in our pursuit of excellence, we continue to partner with local,
regional and international institutions that provide opportunities for growth and development for our
faculty, staff and students.
