Submit Your Bio!


Our external website is an indispensable element of our connection to future students, current learners, staff, alumni and community. website is being modernized and repositioned to support institutional goals.

Phase one of the refreshed external Selkirk College site is launching at the end of this month. It will deliver a visually impressive, easy-to-navigate, mobile-friendly design, rewritten content and updated images. Work on subsequent phases is already underway, and the project will require additional months of work to get the website to a more final result.

Student Life Landing Page - New Website


Your Story is Important for Our Story

Instructor and staff bios are a vital element of any post-secondary website. Selkirk College’s core values put an emphasis on delivering an education that builds relationships, and many current and future students want to know who the people are in this wonderful neighbourhood.

Here’s what we need...

Your Bio

If you don’t have a bio on the current website, please take some time to tell the college community a little bit about yourself. It’s a little awkward, but these bios should be written in third-person. Include some details on your background, your area of expertise and whatever personal facts you feel comfortable in sharing. The optimum length is between 250-350 words.

Bios are not just for faculty and leadership. Every single member of the Selkirk College team has something to tell about themselves and it is important that we introduce all the amazing people in our neighbourhood to the community.

How Can I Submit My Bio?

You can send us your bio through the Marketing & Communications Service Desk. Select “I have a website bio to submit” to input some basic information and your completed bio.

Your Photo

We need your smiles! Selkirk College prides itself on connections with students, the community and each other. The faces of the people who work here are important when making those connections. As a bonus, when you meet a bunch of colleagues and can’t exactly remember who is who, a quick search on the website will help bring that clarity.
