Prince George, B.C. – The University of Northern British Columbia will engage with individuals and communities across the region as it launches a comprehensive strategic planning renewal process.

Centred on UNBC’s motto ‘En Cha Huná, the collaborative effort will guide the University’s next chapter. 

“UNBC’s roots are firmly planted in northern B.C, with the 16,000 northerners who came together more than 30 years ago to create this University,” says UNBC Board of Governors chair Catherine Wishart. “Following their vision, UNBC has grown into a research-intensive and learner-centred University with more than 16,000 alumni making a difference across our region and beyond. Now it is time to chart the future for the next generation of students, faculty, staff and alumni.” 

Building off the 2018-2021 Strategic Roadmap, the Academic Action Plan and the 2019 Campus Master Plan, this new strategic plan will identify UNBC’s goals and set the University’s direction for the next five years.

“This strategic planning process is an opportunity for UNBC to check in with the communities we serve, validate what we are doing well and learn how we can adapt to the changing realities in northern B.C. and beyond,” says UNBC President Dr. Geoff Payne. “This is your opportunity to share your voice about the future of your University.” 

Throughout the process, UNBC’s Strategic Planning website will be updated with details about how you can engage and share your ideas about the future of UNBC.
