The University of Manitoba was created in 1877 to confer degrees on students graduating from its three founding colleges: St. Boniface College, St. John’s College, and Manitoba College. In 1882, the Manitoba Medical College became affiliated. Wesley College joined in 1888, as did the Manitoba College of Pharmacy in 1902. The year 1904 was an especially momentous one, as the university assumed responsibility for its own science teaching. Other notable additions included the Manitoba Agricultural College in 1906, St. Paul’s College in 1931, Brandon College in 1938, and St. Andrew’s College in 1964. Three years later, United College, formed by the merger of Wesley and Manitoba Colleges, became the University of Winnipeg, while Brandon College became Brandon University.

The diversity of programs offered by the University of Manitoba have grown dramatically over the past century. In 1904, it had six professors in the natural sciences. Today, its 23 faculties and schools offer 67 degrees, diplomas, and certificates at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

As Manitoba’s largest and most research-intensive post-secondary institution, and the only one offering medical and doctoral degrees, the University of Manitoba plays an unrivaled role. It educates most of the province’s professionals, as well as its cultural, political, and business leaders. The University’s influence extends far beyond the boundaries of Manitoba through Canada and the world.

A Centennial Organization Award was presented to the University of Manitoba by Steven Place on 3 April 2004.
