The Université de Saint-Boniface, or USB, is a university college affiliated with the University of Manitoba and located in the Saint Boniface district of Winnipeg, Manitoba , Canada. It is oriented primarily towards the French-speaking community of Saint Boniface and others who want to learn, or be educated through, the French language and Franco-Manitoban culture.
St-Boniface College has a strong Roman Catholic religious affiliation. It originates from a classical school for young men founded on January 12, 1819 by Monseigneur Norbert Provencher. 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. On May 3, 1871, the Manitoba legislature issued a charter to St. Boniface College.
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.
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.
By 2002 the college population was about two-thirds female.
In 2011, the university changed its named from Collège universitaire de Saint-Boniface to Université de Saint-Boniface
It has about 1,000 regular students and 3,000 in its continuing education division, who study in the main building which is located right next to St. Boniface Cathedral, and a block away from Boulevard Provencher, the street located in the middle of St. Boniface and at the heart of the Franco-Manitoban community.
The Université de Saint-Boniface is a member of L'Association des universités de la francophonie canadienne, a network of academic institutions of the Canadian Francophonie.
The Université de Saint-Boniface’s Canada Research Chair on Métis Identity provides research into Aboriginal culture.
