Grande Prairie Regional College Campus

Alberta’s Grande Prairie Regional College (GPRC) has two campuses in Grande Prairie and Fairview. The grounds of the Grande Prairie campus overlook the Bear Creek reservoir and the extensive Muskoseepi Park trail system, while the Fairview campus has the only authorized training centre in the country for Harley-Davidson motorcycles.

GPRC offers bachelor’s degree programs in partnership with other institutions as well as diploma, certificate, and apprenticeships programs.  Nine degree programs, including a bachelor of arts and a bachelor of commerce, can be completed in full at GPRC. GRPC also offers a dual credit program, giving high school students the opportunity to complete certain college credits as early as Grade 11.

There are two major applied research initiatives under way at GPRC. One is the “Pollutants to Products” initiative, which aims to reduce pollutants and find ways to turn them into products. The other is the National Bee Diagnostic Centre, which studies and diagnoses honeybee pests, parasites, and diseases to improve the health of Canada’s beekeeping culture.

Both the Grande Prairie and Fairview campuses have student residences. Recreational facilities at the Grande Prairie campus include a climbing gym with a 3,500-sq.-foot wall. Aspiring athletes can opt to join the GPRC Wolves, who have a strong national competition record, particularly in curling and volleyball.

GPRC provides a sturdy support system for Aboriginal students with an Elder in Residence program, an Aboriginal liaison coordinator, and the Circle of Aboriginal Students, a student group offering cultural and social activities.
