Athabasca University has enjoyed collaborative arrangements with a number of post-secondary institutions, primarily colleges, for many years. These partnerships have enabled students to access a university education in a grouped study, face-to-face environment in both rural and urban areas.

When Donna Clare was singled out among her nursing peers to receive the Committee’s Choice Award at the 2016 CARNA Awards of Nursing Excellence, she was more than chuffed.
