A Century of Forming People for Others

Many people have passed through the College doors throughout its 100 year history, and the Jesuit mission of the College to form people for others has inspired many to go forth and make positive change in our world. Throughout the anniversary year, we will feature 100 stories of individuals who are part of the College's rich history whether as alumni, students, faculty, staff, or members of the community. 100 stories profiles are posted throughout the year starting December 1 here on our website.

 

1917 - 2017

Campion College was founded in 1917 as the Catholic College of Regina. The college originally began as a secondary school for boys, and later offered undergraduate Arts courses as a junior college of the University of Saskatchewan. In 1965, Campion College became a federated college of the University of Saskatchewan, Regina Campus, which is now the University of Regina. With the closure of the high school on 23rd Avenue in 1975, Campion College became solely an undergraduate college at the University of Regina. Campion is the only Jesuit undergraduate college in Canada, and a center of educational excellence offering academic programs and services in partnership with the University of Regina, Luther College, and First Nations University of Canada.
