History

The Western Universities Telecourse Consortium (WUTC) was initiated by President Murray Fraser and several other western university Presidents in 1992. Don Detomasi was appointed by President Fraser as the University of Calgary's representative on WUTC; the position was later taken over by Tom Keenan. WUTC was initially funded by the British Columbia Ministry of Skills, Training and Labour, but later received funding from the four provincial governments and membership fees.

The Consortium was a collaboration between post-secondary educational institutions and educational broadcasters. The mandate of the Consortium was to develop and deliver first and second-year university courses through accessible telecourses in order to increase university access for students in Western Canada. The Consortium was administered by an Executive Director, a Board of Directors and a Program Development Committee. It is unclear if the University withdrew from the Consortium in 1996.
