A long time ago SSC’s founders Robert James Sprott and William Henry Shaw had a vision. They wanted to create a college offering the right programs to meet the needs of the current economy and broader community; programs that provided students with relevant skills and meaningful jobs in high growth industries. Over 100 years later that’s still exactly what Sprott Shaw provides.
