Our Alumni

No part of UNBC has grown more over the past decade than its number of graduates. Six students became the University’s first alumni in 1994. UNBC now has more than 11,000 graduates. Alumni include politicians, entrepreneurs, nurses, teachers, foresters, bankers, and community leaders of all types.

UNBC’s alumni are the University’s single-most important external constituency. As ambassadors, they are key to expanding UNBC’s profile around the world. As citizens, they are applying their UNBC education and experience to improving the social, economic, environmental, and cultural fabric of our communities.
