What is it reputation?
Reputation is a measure of the beliefs, opinions and impressions that one generally has about something. In the case of Red River College, reputation can be based on many things:
- one’s experience as a student, or as the parent or friend of a student at the College;
- hiring or working alongside RRC graduates;
- advertisements, such as the billboards found around the city that celebrate College alumni; and,
- what one reads in the newspaper or discusses in casual conversation.
Why is it important?
Having a strong reputation is important for a number of reasons. Most importantly, it can influence the decisions of potential students as they weigh out their post-secondary options. Similarly, it affects which staff and instructors the college is able to hire, in its quest to build a strong and competitive workforce and be an employer of choice. Finally, it can affect the views of our stakeholders – including industry and employers, government, and the general public – and how they work with us.
