Abstract: This study considers the impact of globalization and the global forces of economics, politics, technology and culture on the role, mission and environment of Saskatchewan Regional Colleges. Regional Colleges are unique higher education institutions in Canada. They were created in the early 1970’s as autonomous “brokering institutions” within a geographic region to deliver a decentralized approach of credit training and be an instrument for community and social development. They delivered other provincial credit-granting institutions training programs to the adults of rural and northern Saskatchewan as well as a large number of community interest programs.
