Your voice. Your UNBC.

UNBC has matured into a celebrated research-intensive and learner-centred university. Coordinated strategic planning helps the University in its pursuit of ideas, the creation and dissemination of knowledge, and meeting the needs of the communities we serve through teaching, research and service. This helps retain the vision of the 16,000 people who came together in the late 1980s to create a University in the North, for the North as a core value.

Be it long-term community-oriented strategic planning, mid-term financial and capital planning, or integrated operational planning supporting day-to-day activities, strategic planning helps set the goals and directions that support future waves of students, professors, staff, programs, research, community partnerships, and more.
