THUNDER BAY – It is solid good news for Lakehead University. Lakehead University continues to shine among Ontario universities in its category. According to Maclean’s University Rankings, Lakehead is ranked near the top in several important categories and second overall when compared to its peer universities in the province.

Nationally, the Thunder Bay and Orillia based facility placed in the top five in several of the report’s key points in its category of universities, including Total Research Dollars, and Student and Faculty Awards. This year’s Maclean’s University Rankings examined various key points from 19 universities across Canada.

“Along with other national rankings, we are very proud of how they reaffirm the quality of education that we provide,” says Dr. Rod Hanley, Lakehead’s Provost and Vice-President (Academic). “As a comprehensive university, it’s gratifying to learn that the key areas assessed in these rankings demonstrate, once again, that Lakehead is an institution where learning and teaching reward both student and professor on many levels.”
