The University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC) represents the dreams and aspirations of 16,000 community-focused champions from northern B.C. who, in 1988 paid $5 and signed a petition to create a university in and for the north. This year, UNBC is proud to reach a significant milestone of graduating over 16,000 students.
To celebrate this exciting achievement, we have launched the #UNBCPayItForward Campaign. We are asking our supporters to pay it forward and make a gift today that will improve access to education and enhance student experiences. We suggest a gift amount of $9.97—this equates to the original $5 donation made by each of the original 16,000 champions (adjusted for inflation, of course). Or perhaps a gift of $99.70, $997.00 or $9,970.00?
16,000 Alumni Award
This student award has been established to honour the first 16,000 alumni who are paying forward the support and opportunities created by the vision and leadership of the original 16,000 petition signers. Please help us support the next 16,000 graduates!
