Malaspina University-College is receiving a name change. Earlier in April, B.C. Premier Gordon Campbell
and Advanced Education Minister Murray Coell announced the school would
become a university, known as Vancouver Island University (VIU).

“As the first-ever Vancouver Island university based outside the
greater Victoria region, Vancouver Island University will be a critical
educational, social and economic hub, giving thousands of students from
Vancouver Island a chance to get the education they want closer to
home,” said Campbell. “VIU will build on its international reputation
for its Aboriginal-focused programs, leading-edge Coastal Resource
Management programs, and trades and technology programs.”

One of those programs includes a very popular baking and pastry
program. The school began as a community college in 1969 and became a
vocational school in 1971 to provide career, technical and trades
programs. In 1989, Malaspina was designated a university college. It
has campuses in Nanaimo, Cowichan, Parksville-Qualicum and Powell
River. Malaspina University-College has an enrolment of 19,124
students, including 1,129 international students.
