Welcome from Dr. George Iwama
It is my pleasure and honour to greet you as UNBC’s fourth President. I joined the University in 2009 and was drawn here by UNBC’s commitment to excellence and its strong sense of community.
Our students and alumni say that this is a special place. So do our faculty and staff. Many of our supporters across Canada and around the world have an emotional connection with this university at a level I’ve not seen before. I admire all that they have accomplished and we’re looking forward to the University’s 25th anniversary in 2015, the same year that Prince George hosts the Canada Winter Games.
With its comprehensive offering of academic and professional programs in a small, personal community, UNBC offers an unparalleled learning environment. We are regularly ranked first in Canada for research activity among small universities; our grads are generally more satisfied and have a higher employment rate than the grads of other BC universities; and even Maclean’s magazine annually ranks UNBC one of the top three small universities in Canada. ...more >
