Even before women were legally recognized as persons, the Ursuline sisters founded Brescia University College in 1919. They created sacred spaces where women could access the prestigious education previously denied to them, while fostering their commitment to leading with wisdom, justice and compassion in a changing world.
Points of pride
For more than 100 years, Brescia University College has been Canada’s leader in women’s education.

Brescia offers wraparound academic, wellness and professional support to graduate women who achieve extraordinary success.
