Brescia UC to be fully integrated into Western


Brescia University College and Western University have announced the start of a process that will see Brescia UC fully integrated into Western by Spring 2024. As Canada’s only women’s university, Brescia UC was originally founded with the intent of guiding young women into higher education. Since then, women have become the majority of the postsecondary student body and the number of women’s universities in North America has declined. Going forward, the school is expected to offer an “enhanced preparatory program” and “broaden pathways for students from equity-specific groups.” Western will create a $25M Brescia Legacy Fund for scholarships and bursaries and will be making job offers to all full-time Brescia UC faculty and staff.
