University records and history


The University of Winnipeg was incorporated in 1967, although its history goes back to Manitoba College, founded 1871, and Wesley College, founded 1888, which merged as United College in 1938.  The records from the University and its founding colleges document their administration and institutional life and that of its various committees, departments, and faculties.
