SIAST Annual Report, 2000/01.
Saskatchewan Inst. of Applied Science and Technology, Saskatoon.
This is the annual report for 2000-2001 from the Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology (SIAST). The SIAST Review Committee's report identified four priorities: (1) an appropriate and progressive mandate; (2) a commitment to accessibility; (3) responsiveness to the labor market; and (4) organizational effectiveness. This report also identifies the challenge of increasing Aboriginal access and success as a major priority. In addition, SIAST will seek alliances and partnerships with business, industry, and other institutions. Other highlights include: (1) SIAST's FTE for 2000 was 10,322, with 2,390 students in adult basic education courses; (2) a total of 3,475 total graduates from 187 programs in 2000 were surveyed for the Graduate Employment Survey; 68% responded. Ninety-six percent rated the overall program quality as good to excellent, while the average salary for respondents in full-time, training related occupations was $2,049 per month; and (3) SIAST's estimated economic impact in 1999-2000 was calculated by taking the sum of direct and estimated indirect expenditures. The impact on the city of Moose Jaw was $55.2 million, and the impact on Saskatoon was an estimated $80.8 million. Includes statements of financial assets and liabilities, with breakdowns of cash flow. (Contains 16 tables.) (NB)
