UNBC 2013 Year in Review UNBC has had another fruitful year full of faculty, student, and research success. • UNBC Forestry Professor Kathy Lewis was named Academic of the Year by the Confederation of University Faculty Associations of BC – the second UNBC professor in a row to receive the honour after Dr. Chris Opio received the distinction last year. • UNBC‘s Dezene Huber, who was part of the inter-university effort which attracted international headlines this year by successfully decoding the genome of the mountain pine beetle. • UNBC’s soccer and basketball teams played their first-ever matches in the Canada West conference of Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS), the highest level of amateur sport in the country. • UNBC Environmental Engineering student Stephanie Doherty was awarded one of only ten 3M National Student Fellowships this year after two UNBC students took home the honour last year in the Award’s inaugural year. Only days before, Doherty was part of the UNBC engineering team that took home a top prize at the national Canadian Engineering Competition in Ottawa.
