Prince George - The nineteenth annual Maclean's magazine ranking of Canadian Universities has rated UNBC, third in its category of primarily undergraduate universities in Canada. MacLean’s gives it the label as the best small university in western Canada, and one of the best in Canada. As in other years, UNBC achieved the high ranking on the strength of its students, high quality faculty, research activity, number one in Canada, and its growing national reputation.
"This is a terrific result for the students, staff, faculty, alumni, and the thousands of people across BC who have each contributed very meaningfully to the University," says UNBC president George Iwama."It is an important result as we continue to foster greater national awareness of the special environment at UNBC, and the impact we are having in our local and global communities. We are a research-active university providing a personal education to our students.''
