Prince George, B.C. – For the fourth straight year, UNBC has been ranked number 3 in the “primarily undergraduate” category by Maclean’s magazine.

“I'm delighted to know that we have distinguished ourselves and our region by our strong standing in the national ranking of universities by Maclean's Magazine. We are third in the country overall, surpassed only by two much older universities in the Maritimes,” says UNBC president George Iwama.  “We are justified in claiming we are Canada's top small university west of Atlantic Canada.”

The two universities which ranked higher than UNBC are Mount Allison of New Brunswick and Acadia in Nova Scotia, both of which are more than 150 years old.

“Despite our continuing success, we can’t rest on our laurels—and we aren’t,” says Dr. Iwama.  “UNBC is ranked first in the country in total research funding per faculty member, and just yesterday, students ranked UNBC number one for commitment to the environment in the Globe and Mail’s Canadian University Report. We are maintaining our focus and priorities in service to our communities in northern British Columbia, Canada, and beyond.”

The annual ranking is important in that  students  looking for  a place to  continue their  studies,  often turn to the  magazine for  input to help  them make a decision on where they will apply.
