Chair's Message

Hello students!

As Chair of CVA, my goal is for students in our programs and our courses to find valuable and interactive learning opportunities. I want our students to be challenged, to learn and engage with new ideas, and to develop skills that will help them in the future.

Taking on a university degree is a significant investment, of time, of energy and of resources. I hope in our program that we can respect this investment and support our students to find their own success and meet their own goals. I invite you to come and chat — maybe one of our programs is for you? Maybe you’d just like to take an elective, explore your creative side, or develop your media production skills? Either way, I’d love to meet you.
