Whistler U rebrands as Whistler International Campus

July 31, 2012

The proposal to establish an education centre in Whistler, BC has changed its name to Whistler International Campus to better reflect what the proposal is all about. "It has become evident to us that the Whistler U moniker was confusing the public in that there was a belief that we were only proposing to build a private university," says proponent Doug Player. "We have always said we wanted to build a learning campus anchored by a university and the name change better reflects our mission and purpose." Currently in front of Whistler city council, the project proposes a campus that would encompass a multi-institutional approach, with UNBC and BCIT already partners. The proposal calls for a private international high school, a leadership centre, and a research and development centre that includes the arts. Whistler Question
