For over 150 years Assumption University, under the administration of the Basilian Fathers, has provided a range of educational opportunities to the people of the Windsor and Essex County region. Assumption began as a College in the classical French style, became a comprehensive Provincial University, and since 1963 has remained an independent University federated with its daughter university, the University of Windsor.
Since the inception of the University of Windsor, Assumption University has focused its role on the relationship between religion and culture. This focus is expressed through: The Christian Culture Series (a distinguished speakers series) and its Faith and Culture Gold Medal; a Department of Graduate Ecumenical Theology; and The Centre for the Study of Religion and Culture with opportunities for research Chairs. Assumption University also operates the Freed-Orman Conference Centre serving both the academic and the larger city community as a meeting and events space.
Brescia University College is Canada’s women’s university. We were founded in 1919 by the Ursuline Sisters, strong women of faith who are committed to social justice, community service, and the development of women. While our roots are in the Catholic faith, we are open to - and embrace - women of all faiths.
Brescia is affiliated with The University of Western Ontario, the third-largest university in the province. That means you’ll benefit from the small, supportive atmosphere at Brescia while still enjoying the resources Western has to offer.
