FREDERICTON - In a stately Victorian era home a few blocks from the University of New Brunswick's main campus, Renaissance College is a hub of activity. Students, faculty and staff stream in and out, stopping to exchange greetings, share notes or catch up on research. For a decade, Renaissance College has offered the country's first leadership studies bachelor program. "The word renaissance is a very purposefully chosen word," Ted Needham, dean of the college, says. "Renaissance means rebirth and the idea is to reinvigorate, innovate and make a positive change in post-secondary education to develop highly innovative leaders." The college will be holding a series of events in mid-March to mark its 10-year anniversary, which will be themed celebrating the past, challenging the present and creating the future. "After a decade, Renaissance College's proof of performance is in what the students discover here and what they do with it," Eddy Campbell, university president and vice-chancellor, says.
