Laurentian University (Université Laurentienne), founded in 1960, is a mid-sized bilingual university in Greater Sudbury, Ontario, Canada. While LU's focus is primarily on undergraduate programming, the university also features Canada's newest medical school — opened in 2005, the Northern Ontario School of Medicine, in consortium with Laurentian and Lakehead University, offers a significant number of graduate-level degrees for medical students.

Overview

The university's campus is located on the south side of Lake Ramsey, just south of Greater Sudbury's downtown core and near some of the city's wealthiest residential neighbourhoods. The city's Idylwylde golf course also borders on the university campus. Lake Ramsey is a lake in Greater Sudbury, Ontario, located near the citys downtown core. ... This article is about the sport of golf. ...


The university has a federated school structure, similar to that of the University of Toronto. The school also has an unusual and sometimes controversial student government structure — there are actually two separate student unions (in addition to the part time and graduate student associations). A federated school, federated college or affiliated school is an educational institution which is independent in some respects, but is ultimately governed by a larger institution. ... The University of Toronto (U of T) is a public research university in the city of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. ...


The Francophone Student's Association (AEF) is for francophones, while the Student's General Association (SGA) is for both anglophones and francophones. However, any student can affiliate with either union, regardless of language, and because the two unions do not offer identical student services, many students from one language group change their affiliation to the other student union depending on which services they want. Consequently, in practice the two student unions often compete with each other rather than serving distinct groups. A Francophone is a person who speaks French natively or by adoption (i. ... An anglophone is someone who speaks English natively or by adoption. ...


Partnership

The university has strong ties with the mining industry, being one of the few schools in Canada offering mining engineering, and the only Canadian university located in a city where the major industry is mining. The Willett Green Miller Centre, a provincial building located on the site, is home to the Mining Innovation, Rehabilitation and Applied Research Corporation (MIRARCO), a not-for-profit applied research and technical service company formed through collaboration between Laurentian University and the private and public sectors. The Willett Green Miller Centre is also home to the Mineral Exploration Research Centre (MERC), a semi-autonomous research and teaching centre whose focus is field-based, collaborative research on mineral deposits and their environments. The mission of MERC is to conduct and promote cutting-edge, field-based, collaborative research on mineral deposits and their environments, and to educate and train highly qualified personnel for careers in the minerals industry, academia or government.


The university is also a key partner in the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNO), the world's deepest underground laboratory that has been providing, since 1998, new clues on the composition of the sun and the origins of the universe. Artists concept of SNOs detector. ... Sol redirects here. ...

Administration

Laurentian University's president is currently Dr. Judith Woodsworth. On February 29, 2008, the Concordia Board of Governors announced the appointment of Dr. Judith Woodsworth as president and vice-chancellor of Concordia University, effective August 1, 2008. Dr. Woodsworth has been president of Laurentian University since July 2002. In April 2006, she was reappointed by the Board of Governors for a second five-year term which commenced in July 2007. Under her leadership, we saw the opening of the Northern Ontario School of Medicine in 2005, the creation of the university’s first six PhD programs, tremendous growth in research capacity and numerous construction projects on campus. The Board of Governors heads the university with the president. Directly to the left and right of the president is the assistant to the president, and the Laurentian University senate. Laurentian University's affiliate universities, each have a chancellor. The chancellor is largely a ceremonial role, and has little participation in the day-to-day operations of the university. The chancellor for the affiliated, University of Sudbury is prominent Sudbury lawyer André Lacroix Q.C./c.r. LL.D. (from the law firm Lacroix Forest LLP/s.r.l.). The chancellor for the affiliated Thorneloe University is Dr. Ernie Checkeris. And the first chancellor of the affiliated Huntington University is Dr. Edward (Ted) Conroy, another prominent Sudbury lawyer from the law firm of Conroy Scott Trebb Hurtubise LLP. University administration is the responsibility of the Board of Governors, headed by the chairperson of the Board of Governors. This post is current held by Carolyn Sinclair.

Commerce and Administration

Laurentian's school of commerce and administration was founded in 1960. Laurentian has embraced the world of international business by creating and maintaining relationships with other universities around the world. It is modeled off of the prestigious University of Western Ontario's Richard Ivey School of Business. The school offers small class sizes, one-on-one teaching, and a outstanding faculty. The school of commerce and administration offers a wide variety of programs, from MBAs to honours degrees in Commerce, Sports Administration (SPAD) and e-Business. The University of Western Ontario (known as Western, as well as UWO or Western Ontario) is a research university located in London, Ontario. ... The Richard Ivey School of Business is one of the most reputable business schools in Canada. ... MBA redirects here. ...


The school utilizes the case study method, in which it teaches through extensive use of business case studies. The case method enables class discussion of real business problems; which will apply the concepts, decision making methods and tools to those situations to help develop analytical and decision making skills. Students get involved in the community by studying real organizations of their choice, participating in research projects sponsored by businesses in the community and solving real problems.


Education

Currently, Laurentian has both English and French language education programs for teacher training.

  • L`École des sciences

In the Alphonse Raymond building, at the east end of campus, is L`École des sciences de l`éducation de l`Université Laurentienne. Named after Father Alphonse Raymond, and opened in 1974, the building houses classrooms, a cafeteria, an auditorium, a small gymnasium, and offices for more than a dozen professors. Students attending L'École des sciences have a variety of programs from which to choose. The school, for example, offers a traditional consecutive post-grad B.Ed., a newer concurrent B.A. Educ. degree that can be taken full or part-time, the possibility of engaging in studies on-line, and the chance for certified teachers to complete additional qualifications. B.Ed. students who attend L'École des sciences must complete fifty days of practicum placement focusing on observation and practice teaching. The program provides many of the French-speaking teachers who work in Ontario's publicly-funded education system, particularly in schools located in the northeastern section of the province. See http://laurentienne.ca/educ/index.htm

  • English-language School

The English side of the education equation has been more chequered. In 1967 Nipissing University College (with its origins in the North Bay Normal School - commonly called a "Teachers’ College" in Ontario) became affilitated with Laurentian. But in 1992 Nipissing received its own charter and Laurentian lost its formal connection to an English language school of education. More than a decade later, in September 2003, Laurentian began offering its own bachelor of education program in English. This concurrent B.Ed. is a four or five year program taken along with an undergraduate degree. The primary goal of the English language bachelor of education program is to foster the development of a new generation of reflective educators who employ holistic teaching approaches. The curriculum features an emphasis on equity and diversity as well as the infusion of aboriginal issues and content. At the moment, the program is offered in just two of the three areas of potential concentration: the primary/junior and junior/intermediate divisions. At present, most faculty members are located on the fifth floor of the Parker Building, with the remainder in the Science II building. A new school of education building - based on sustainable environmental principles and located across from L`École des sciences at the east end of the campus - is slated for completion in early 2008.

  • Business Administration (M.B.A.)
  • Chemical Sciences (M.Sc.)
  • Mineral Resources Engineering (M.Eng. and M.A.Sc.)
  • Geology (M.Sc.)
  • History (M.A.)
  • Human Development (M.A. and M.Sc.)
  • Interdisciplinary Humanities (M.A.)
    The Master's in Humanities: Interpretation and Values is unique to Laurentian University. The interdisciplinary programme is designed to introduce students to the whole spectrum of the Humanities; students who are in the programme are not pigeon-holed into one specific discipline within the Humanities, but rather, are allowed to freely explore all the humanities' disciplines holistically.

    One of the features that differentiates the Interdisciplinary Humanities M.A. from others is the practicum component. Students not only cover a broad spectrum of humanities discourses—and disciplines—in the programme, but also, with the practicum component, they must also bring the theoretical to the practical. Part of the requirement of this M.A. is that students must go into the work force and complete a work study, using the framework of various Humanities discourses to find meaning in a practical, "hands on" setting.
