Saint Mary’s was named a top five Canadian undergraduate university in Maclean’s 2014 University Rankings issue, moving up three spots from last year in our strongest finish to date. “Our placing is great recognition of the strength of our faculty in receiving national awards and research funding,” says University President, Dr. J. Colin Dodds. Maclean’s acknowledged Saint Mary’s as having the highest percentage of full time faculty in Nova Scotia with a Ph.D, and the highest percentage of first year international students (tied with McGill at 24 per cent).
“We all know Saint Mary’s is a great school,” says Gorba Bhandari, President of the Saint Mary’s University Student Association. “It’s nice to have an independent assessment confirm what we already know.”
