UNBC to brand as "Canada's Green University"

June 21, 2007

UNBC has set its sights on becoming Canada’s Green University.  According to a representative, the school’s heavy research focus on environmental studies, as well as its unique location in the BC “wilderness,” sets the path toward this goal.  8% of the school's students are in environmental studies, the highest rate in BC.  12 of the school’s privately-funded research chairs are focused on environmental issues. “We are now trademarked as Canada’s Green University, and we’ll definitely make that a big part of how we strengthen the image of UNBC around the country.”  The Prince George Citizen
