Contact Information & News Update

One of the greatest challenges the Alumni Association faces is keeping in contact with UNBC graduates. Newsletter as well as invitations to special events and information regarding possible job opportunities are sent to UNBC alumni numerous times a year. The Permanent Address Form has been created so alumni will have a permanent mailing address (parent, relative or friend) on record at the University, making it easier to contact them in the event that they may be changing addresses within the next few years.

Please be assured that this information will not be passed on to anyone outside the University of Northern BC without permission.
