Unveiling of new brand image

Saisir l’avenir, at the Collège de Rosemont
Higher Education Your Way, at Cégep à distance

Montréal, August 19, 2013 – In the festive atmosphere of the beginning of the new academic year, surrounded by Rosemont staff, General Director Stéphane Godbout proudly unveiled the new logos of the Collège de Rosemont and Cégep à distance.

“Our new brand image builds on the major mobilization efforts the Rosemont community has made in recent years, leading to the adoption of shared values (accessibility, commitment, cooperation and eco-citizenship) and a new 2012-2017 educational project and strategic plan,” Mr. Godbout explained. “The logos we are unveiling here today are anchored in our vision of a socially responsible, ground-breaking learning and living environment, where student success is a collective commitment. These logos reflect our innovative, human and forward-looking spirit.”

It extends an invitation to future students and members of the community to seize the future in a setting where research and experimentation are valued with a view to shared advancement and knowledge development.

Higher Education Your Way

The Higher Education Your Way signature expresses the very essence of Cégep à distance’s mandate, which is to offer students the ultimate flexibility in their studies. Wherever they may be, with individualized coaching and support to guide them along the path to success, students truly experience Higher Education – Their Way!

About the Collège de Rosemont

The Collège de Rosemont has long valued the idea and practice of distance education, with its first correspondence courses offered in 1974.

At Cégep à distance, some 17,000 people enrol in one or more of the 250 courses offered each year, for a total of 27,000 course enrolments.

The Collège de Rosemont offers 16 pre-university and technical training programs, as well as the Tremplin DEC transitional education options, to 3,400 students and welcomes nearly 1,600 new students every year. Its continuing education department offers ten attestation of college studies (ACS/AEC) programs.
