The History of Assumption University

Assumption University of Windsor, Ontario, Canada has a heritage reaching back to 1857 and is the parent of the University of Windsor, administered by the Congregation of St. Basil, the Basilian Fathers. When the University of Windsor was established in 1963, Assumption University entered into federation with the newly formed University of Windsor and became the Catholic university within the University of Windsor.

The assumption is a privately operated, autonomous university separate from the University of Windsor and yet an integral part of it. It has retained its degree-granting powers and graduates students within the area of theology, as well as granting honorary degrees.

Academic Highlights

The Learn for Life program was founded in 2016 in order to provide educational opportunities to diverse audiences while promoting Assumption University’s mission. The program offers courses on a range of subjects from religion and theology to history and politics to health and ethics. The courses are designed for those interested in learning for the sake of learning.

Life in Assumption University

As ministers to students, we recognize our call as seed-planters.  For some, we can see the seeds taking root and even blossoming; for others the seeds take root later in life.  Much of the fruit can been seen in the amazing things our students have gone to do after graduation.  Just in the last few years we have seen students go off to serve as missionaries, seminarians, and professionals.
