The University of Northern British Columbia is the top university of its size in the country, according to annual rankings released today by Maclean’s magazine.

For the first time ever, the school ranked first in the Primarily Undergraduate category that includes 19 different universities.

“This recognition from Maclean’s only supports what the residents of Northern BC already know – that UNBC provides a first-rate education and a foundation for the development of the next generation of leaders for our region, our province and our country,” says UNBC President Dr. Daniel Weeks.

He added that the dedication of faculty and staff, the achievements of students and alumni, and the generosity of  donors all contributed to the accomplishment.

UNBC  finished in the top five in seven different categories including:

  • Student awards
  • Total research dollars
  • Library acquisitions
  • Student/faculty ratio
  • Faculty awards
  • Operating budget per full-time student
  • Library expenses

This year, Maclean’s added a student satisfaction survey, and it appears strong support from UNBC students figured significantly in the outcome.

UNBC students gave the University high marks in mental health services, extra-curricular activities and the quality of course instructors.
