NII develops its programming in cooperation with respected educational providers and partners in academia, philanthropic foundations and the private sector. Its portfolio of initiatives is built upon the following principles:


  • A primary focus on delivering programs to students in or in close proximity to the Grey, Bruce and Huron regions. 

  • NII’s educational programs should be as inclusive and accessible as possible. Wherever possible, they should be free to students.

  • NII courses, workshops, lectures and programs should be innovative in their content, engaging in presentation, and adhere to the highest pedagogical standards.

  • NII’s educational programming will offer a mix of hands-on, experiential learning, and distance learning that connects students⁠—wherever they are⁠—to the best teaching and knowledge available.

NII will consider partnerships with the following entities to deliver programming: accredited academic institutions; private sector companies with expertise in education; philanthropic foundations; indigenous communities; and individuals with particular experience in educational programming.
