Fleming College, also known as Sir Sandford Fleming College, is a College of Applied Arts and Technology in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada. The College has more than 6,000 full-time and 10,000 part-time students and 58,000 alumni.
The main campus of Fleming College is the Sutherland campus in Peterborough. Peterborough is also home to the McRae campus. Other campuses of the College are located in Cobourg, Haliburton (the Haliburton School of the Arts), and Lindsay (the Frost Campus). The College's modern architecture was designed by Ronald Thom.
Peterborough campuses 
Sutherland campus 
The Dobbin farm was selected in 1968 for what would later be named the Brealey Campus. In 1973 the first two phases of the site were opened, and in 1983 the site was named the Sutherland Campus in honour of the college’s first and founding president. The Sutherland campus underwent expansion earlier in the decade, which included a new on-campus residence, which opened in 2002, and a new technology wing, which was opened in 2003.
A new Kawartha Skilled Trades Centre is currently being constructed.
St. Joseph's at Fleming, opened in 2004 is the first long-term care facility to be built on a college or university campus. A cluster of eight resident homes for 200 people, the facility is setting the standard for compassionate care and innovation.
In 2005, the Peterborough Sport & Wellness Centre was constructed on campus to accommodate the college's athletic needs. Built in partnership with the City of Peterborough, the Wellness Centre provides state-of-the-art athletic and aquatic facilities to students and the community.
McRae Campus 
In 1967 a campus opened in a renovated textile mill on McDonnel Street, and in 1968 the site was named the Stewart W. Daniel Building. The McRae building was also constructed on this same property in 1976. At present the site is accessible through a Bonaccord Street entrance and is home to the School of Continuing Education and Skilled Trades.
Cobourg Campus 
The Cobourg Campus was officially opened in 1971. Today the campus offers the full-time Esthetician diploma program as well as Academic Upgrading and Continuing Education courses.
Haliburton Campus 
In 1969, the Haliburton School of Fine Arts became part of Sir Sandford Fleming College. In 2004 the campus moved to a new location in Glebe Park on Head Lake in the Village of Haliburton, and today it is known as the Haliburton School of The Arts. The campus offers full-time 14-week Art Certificates in Artist Blacksmithing, Drawing and Painting, Photo Arts, Digital Image Design, Sculpture, Ceramics, Glassblowing, Jewellery, and Fibre Arts. Students can combine these Certificate programs with a year of foundation credits to obtain a Visual and Creative Arts Diploma. Other programs offered at the campus include Expressive Arts, Sustainable Building Design and Construction, Sustainable Renovations, Horticulture Apprentice, Continuing Education, and Academic Upgrading.
Haliburton School of The Arts continues to run its popular short-duration summer art courses, offering a selection of over 300 courses from May to August, open to people of all skill levels. The Haliburton Sculpture Forest is located in the forested area of the campus. The Sculpture Forest features over 25 permanent sculptures by Canadian and International artists.
Frost Campus 
St. Joseph's Convent was the original location of the college's Lindsay campus in 1967. The college acquired its own facilities by 1973 and in turn, this site was named the Frost Campus (in honour of Leslie Frost). It is currently home to the School of Environmental and Natural Resource Sciences. This campus focuses on environmental and natural resource education (earth resources, fish and wildlife, GIS etc.), and was expanded with a new environmental technology wing in 2004.
In September 2008 the Frost Campus became home to the new joint degree-diploma in Ecological Restoration in partnership with Trent University. Students in the program spend two years at Fleming and two years at Trent. They graduate with an Honours B.Sc. and an Ontario Diploma in Ecological Restoration.
The College was named after the famous Scottish born engineer and inventor Sandford Fleming, who is perhaps best known for his contributions to the concept of Universal Standard Time and was knighted in 1897 by Queen Victoria. On 21 May 1965, legislation was introduced in Ontario establishing Colleges of Applied Arts and Technology by then Minister of Education William G. Davis. This historic occasion for education within Ontario marked the beginning of what would become, some 40 years later, a group of 21 Colleges of Applied Arts and Technology and 3 College Institutes of Technology and Advanced Learning. Sir Sandford Fleming College was founded in 1967 by David B. Sutherland, three years after Trent University, also in Peterborough was founded. Mr. Sutherland was the husband of Peterborough's longest serving Mayor, Sylvia Sutherland. The Sir Sandford Fleming College of Applied Arts and Technology's Arms and Badge were registered with the Canadian Heraldic Authority on October 15, 2006.
The college has established pathways from college to university through affiliations with a number of provincial, national and international universities.
Fleming College and the Fleming College Foundation, along with its generous donors and sponsors, have provided more than $6 million to students in financial need through scholarships and bursaries.
Fleming College features more than 90 full-time programs in Business and Technology, Continuing Education and Skilled Trades, Environmental and Natural Resource Sciences, Visual Arts, Education, Health and Wellness, and Law, Justice and Community Services.
Fleming College is noted for its excellent environmental, business, museum management, and nursing programs. It also offers a number of post-graduate diplomas in Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Event Management, and Emergency Management. As well, Fleming College has a Computer Security & Investigations program, which is one of only three related programs in Canada.
Community Involvement 
In April 2012, ten almost-graduates of the Eco System Management Technician Program of Fleming College completed their work placement at Gamiing Nature Centre. Their task was helping remove a non-native and invasive species of the Blackthorn shrub, in what was otherwise known as Gamiing's Buckthorn Removal Project.
