Aligning college actions to regional needs has become the focus for Reg Radke, a veteran Medicine Hat College (MHC) employee, who recently accepted the newly-created role of manager of regional stewardship.
College president Dr. Denise Henning, says the focus of the position is regional development and stewardship and ensuring that MHC develops and maintains productive relationships with the many communities in southeast Alberta.
“Our mandate is to serve all the communities in this region,” says Henning. “We need to extend ourselves, establish relationships, and understand the opportunities and hopes of the southeast Alberta region we serve. I’m delighted that Reg will be our ambassador and link to communities across the region.”
The challenge is one Radke is eager to accept. “As manager of the Brooks Campus for several years I’ve learned a lot about the unique challenges and opportunities in rural and remote areas. Our president has a great deal of experience in this area so I’m confident we’ll be able to make strong progress.”
The position is responsible for uniting regional stakeholders and college leaders to identify, plan, build capacity, implement and assess programs, training and related services to meet the needs of populations outside of Medicine Hat.
Radke explains that he won’t walk away from his roots at the Brooks Campus and in fact will continue to serve as the campus’ on-site administrator who represents the interests of MHC, and assists the faculty, staff and students at the Brooks Campus, and other delivery sites in the region.
Reg Radke can be reached at 403 362-1684, or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
