Legislation proposes full university status for CUSB

April 28, 2011

Yesterday Manitoba's advanced education minister introduced legislation that would result in full university status for Collège universitaire de Saint-Boniface (CUSB), whose new name would be Université de Saint-Boniface. Under the legislation, the institution would become an independent university but remain affiliated with the University of Manitoba. The university status would give the school greater flexibility in affiliating with other PSE schools around the world. CUSB's board chair says the legislation is a reflection of the institution's modern role as Manitoba's only French-language university and will help the school better serve its students.
