2008 Maclean's Magazine Survey Results Now Available

November 10, 2008

The 2008 Maclean’s Magazine survey of Canadian universities puts the University of Lethbridge in the Top Ten ranking for Primarily Undergraduate institutions, and in a 7th place tie with the University of Prince Edward Island.

Complete results for the 18th annual survey will be available on the Maclean’s website at: http://oncampus.macleans.ca/education/

“It is always nice to be in the top 10, and the rankings have always been a reasonable snapshot of how we compare with other universities across the country -- but there are other measures to a school you can’t quantify,” said U of L President Bill Cade.

“We are providing an engaging place for people to learn, and we know that our students value their experiences here – they tell us through independent satisfaction surveys and by other means that we’re doing a good job.”

The U of L and other institutions are independently surveyed by a number of organizations including the Alberta government, a recent external survey by the Globe and Mail and continuing survey by a consortium Canadian Universities.

It contains the same publicly-available information obtained by Maclean’s for the 2008 survey.
