Since it was founded in 1967, Loyalist has been an integral part of the communities it serves. A strong partner in the economic growth and vitality of the greater Quinte area, the College today includes more than 590,000 square feet of space at its Belleville and Bancroft campuses, supporting programs and services for close to 3,000 full-time and 12,000 part-time students each year.
Loyalist’s economic impact on the region is profound. A recent study found that the College generates 6,000 jobs in the region, and more than 1,000 new graduates are added to the workforce each year. Many graduates choose to live and work in our region.
Loyalist has deliberately chosen to be a community college, with our roots deep in our communities and our region. We are committed to remaining both community-driven and globally alert.
Loyalist College has a positive impact on the regional economy, creating value for students and the community, according to an independent study by Economic Modeling Specialists International (Emsi).
