History

Louis Riel Sculpture @ Université de Saint-Boniface

St-Boniface College has a strong Roman Catholic religious affiliation.[1] It originates from a classical school for young men founded on January 12, 1819 by Monseigneur Norbert Provencher.[2] It was incorporated into its current form in 1871.

Consolidation was a way to strengthen this small and financially insecure institution. The University Of Manitoba was established in 1877 as a classic college for men, St. Boniface College. It was established by combining three existing church colleges: St. Boniface Roman Catholic, St John's Anglican, and Manitoba College Presbyterian.[1] On May 3, 1871, the Manitoba legislature issued a charter to St. Boniface College.[2]

In the early part of this century, professional education expanded beyond the traditional fields of theology, law and medicine. Graduate training based on the German-inspired American model of specialized course work and the completion of a research thesis was introduced.[1]

The policy of university education initiated in the 1960s responded to population pressure and the belief that higher education was a key to social justice and economic productivity for individuals and for society.[1]

By 2002 the college population was about two-thirds female.[citation needed]

In 2011, the university changed its named from Collège universitaire de Saint-Boniface to Université de Saint-Boniface
