BCCAT 2020-21 Annual Review
CONNECTIONS: Supporting Educational Pathways as a Collaborative Community
In 2020, BC's post-secondary community faced remarkable challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic. BCCAT's top priority is to ensure that learners and post-secondary institutions continue to benefit from BC's network of flexible learner pathways during this critical time and going forward.
This Annual Review takes a look at the ways that BCCAT has worked this past year to strengthen collaboration and connections vital to enabling learner access and mobility even, and perhaps especially, in times like these.
"There is perhaps no better example of successful cross-system integration than our post-secondary credit transfer system, overseen by the BC Council on Admissions and Transfer. Over the last 30 years, BCCAT has been instrumental in developing a highly efficient, evolving transfer system that is a world standard and the envy of other jurisdictions within Canada and abroad."- Max Blouw, President, Research Universities' Council of BC (RUCBC)"Describe the impact of COVID-19 on your institution? Total. Total impact. At NIC we've been guided in all of this impact and change by the ongoing mission of fostering student success."- Diane Naugler, Dean, Business & Applied Studies, North Island College"[The expansion of the BC Transfer Guide] is part of BCCAT's ongoing efforts to improve upon BC's premiere transfer system. Thank you for your contributions to our collective success in supporting BC students."- Rob Fleming (Executive Director & Co-Chair, BCCAT)
