Thanks to your committment and generosity, UNBC is transforming the region while tackling issues that are important far beyond our boundaries.
A generation ago, the challenges faced by British Columbia’s North were clear — enterprising and promising young leaders were leaving the region, compromising the future of industries and communities. Your calls for a northern university were realized, and UNBC was born.
UNBC recently wrapped up its first comprehensive fundraising campaign Northern Leadership: The Campaign for UNBC.
Together we raised $21.4 million to strengthen research and teaching excellence, inspire next-generation leaders and create local solutions with global impact.
A total of 3,306 donors contributed to the Northern Leadership campaign, resulting in the creation of 158 new student awards.
The funds also supported strategic investment in a number of institutional priorities and projects that will foster further innovation and high quality academic programming and research, that will have an immeasurable impact in Northern B.C. communities and across the globe.
And we're just getting started!
UNBC’s excellence is derived from community-inspired research, hands-on learning, and alumni who are leading change around the world.
Your continued support is just as vital today as it was 25 years ago.
You will help educate more outstanding students so that they are prepared to lead, intensify practical research in partnership with institutions and communities worldwide, and drive positive change nationally and internationally, while never losing sight of the critical and unique needs of our region.
Fundraising is focused on three key areas:
- Strengthen research and teaching excellence
- Inspire next-generation leaders
- Create local solutions with global impact
