The History of Booth University College

Booth University College was established in 1982 as Catherine Booth Bible College.

On 17 June 2010 the college officially became Booth University College. In July 2016, Marjory Kerr became Booth University College's fifth president. Close to 300 students are enrolled at the Winnipeg Campus (September to April).
