UNBC recently celebrated its 20th convocation and passed the 10,000 all-time graduates mark. Following the Prince George ceremony, UNBC's convocation platform party, including UNBC President George Iwama, Chancellor John MacDonald, and members of the University's senior administration traveled more than 2,000 kilometers to attend convocations at UNBC's regional campuses in Terrace, Gitwinksihlkw, Quesnel, and Fort St. John, and to personally grant their degrees and congratulate them. UNBC has 1.9 percent of the university students in BC. From this small number, UNBC annually produces more graduates for Northern BC than all other BC universities combined. Their ranks include nearly 3,000 Bachelor of Science degrees, 2,000 Bachelor of Arts degrees, and represent the education of 1,200 nurses in Northern BC, and 1,200 regionally-educated graduates. These engineers, scientists, teachers, health care workers, entrepreneurs, administrators, parents, and leaders are helping to sustain northern communities and improve the world.
