Quest University, Squamish, British Columbia Canada
Quest University, Squamish, BC, Canada is a private non-profit liberal arts and sciences university in Squamish, British Columbia, Canada. The university opened in September 2007, andis located on a 60-acre (24.3 ha) mountain-top campus on the edge of Garibaldi Provincial Park. Ten years ago, the school was just an idea. Back then, Strangway, along with Quest founding directors Peter Ufford, who was Strangway's vice-president, external affairs at UBC, and lawyer and fundraising expert Blake Bromley, worked out a game plan. They formed the Sea to Sky Foundation (SSF), accepting contributions from donors and seeking to purchase a parcel of land, of which they could sell bits and pieces at market value to pay for construction of the university. It is approximately 73 km (45 miles) from Vancouver and 57 km (35 miles) from Whistler. Quest University is approved by the Degree Quality Assessment Board (DQAB) under the British Columbia Ministry of Advanced Education.
The university was the brainchild of David Strangway, OC, FRSC, who, after his retirement as president of the University of British Columbia, had begun to explore the possibility of creating a four-year, residential, liberal arts institution in Canada. Strangway wanted to create a university "where the student-teacher ratio was better than the Canadian national average of 30 to one, and where students could get a general arts and sciences curriculum that focused not on specific disciplines, but rather how those disciplines operated within the world at large.
On April 30, 2011, Quest University Canada graduated its first class, bestowing the degree of Bachelor of Arts and Sciences on 49 students.
A survey in 2012 ranked Quest first in Canada on five measures of educational quality.
"We are delighted to see that we have, by a considerable margin, the highest ranking in Canada, confirming the leading position we have gained in less than five short years as we've set out to create a new model for undergraduate education in North America," university president David Helfand said in a release. "Our model is built around fostering active and collaborative learning within a challenging curriculum created by a faculty with an unwavering commitment to undergraduate students. The independent assessment NSSE provides is invaluable as we continue to improve on our unique educational model."
