Award-winning students and faculty and a significant commitment to research activity and library spending combined to help SFU win top spot for the second year in a row in the 2009 annual Maclean’s ranking of Canada’s comprehensive universities.

The comprehensive category includes 11 universities that have a wide range of undergraduate and graduate programs and professional degrees as well as significant research activity.

The rankings consider a variety of factors, including expenditures on student services, scholarships and libraries, student/faculty awards, student/faculty ratios and the number of national faculty research grants.

Last year, SFU tied for first place with the University of Victoria. This year, UVic placed second, followed by the University of Waterloo in third place.

Maclean’s published complete details of this year’s rankings in its Nov. 5 issue, including a full insider’s guide to Canadian post-secondary education.
