The world has changed, and Niagara College’s encore magazine is changing with it.
The College’s encore magazine has gone live with a brand new website. A one-stop shop for College alumni and the extended NC community – from alumni to donors, stakeholders and friends, both in Niagara and beyond – the new encore expands on the tradition of its former print editions by offering its global readers24/7 access to the College’s official magazine from anywhere in the world.
By visiting the new encore site, viewers can access more NC features and news than ever before and content will be updated regularly – including spotlights showcasing prominent alumni and the standout people and initiatives within the College community; as well as the latest headlines from our campuses; donor and development highlights, and much more.
The new encore debuts with articles shining the spotlight on NC as it enters a new era. It introduces the College’s new leaders as well as the legacy left behind by president emeritus Dan Patterson. Several articles focus on NC during the global pandemic: both on the frontlines in the community – whether it’s innovating made-in-Niagara solutions within our research labs, or tapping into our ‘NC DNA’ to better serve students during this extraordinary time through initiatives such as virtual convocation or the many ways NC has gone the extra mile.
It features more extraordinary alumni than ever before, with profiles on Oakville’s deputy fire chief Monique Belair blazing trails for change, Mark Suknanan’s journey to becoming Canada’s Drag Queen, former NC Student Administrative Council president Shane Malcolm helping to bridge corporate Canada with Black talent, Brewmaster graduates over the past decade raising a glass to the program’s 10 year anniversary, and much more.
Digital encore launches more than 11 years since the College published its first print edition. It is produced through a collaboration between NC’s Corporate Communications, and Marketing and Recruitment departments, in consultation with Development and Alumni Relations, and select contributors from across the College.
