“Athabasca University is committed to breaking down barriers that prevent learners from access to and success in post-secondary programs,” said Richard MacLeod, Registrar and Chair of the Student Awards Committee. “The many student awards we have available, including the ones with quickly approaching deadlines, have helped many of our learners transform their lives.”
