Word Processing Centre Renewed and Renamed

Ensuring the Tools Keep Up With the Times


Changes are underway for the Word Processing Centre on Selkirk College’s Castlegar Campus.

Aimed at streamlining internal processes and workflow for the production of educational materials and policies, the position of Educational Documents and Publications Clerk has been created. LaVerne Popoff will move over from the now defunct WPC Centre to fill this role.

“This change has been made to keep up with current technology and the current needs at the college,” says Selkirk College Registrar Cathy Mercer. “We recognized a need to improve our support for the academic governance processes of the college and have been working to develop and bring those services together. This is the next step.”

Popoff will work closely with Natasha Makortoff who supports Education Council and its standing committees playing a big role in Selkirk’s extensive policy renewal process over this last year.

“With more college employees actively using word processing tools, the founding notion of the Word Processing Centre doesn’t fit any longer,” says Mercer.

The Educational Document Publications function will continue to support our Schools with the following: course outlines, exams, printed course materials, program and College policies, school specific handbooks and publications.

Previously under the Campus Management Department, the Educational Documents and Publications Clerk will report to Marketing Manager Maggie Keczan.

Access to the Educational Documents and Publications Clerk services will soon be available through a new service portal which will also provide helpdesk access for Marketing, IT and Maintenance.
