Honouring Our Past, Embracing Our Future: Celebrating a Century of Excellence in Education at the University of Regina Campus
In 2011, the University of Regina began celebrating an important milestone--the centennial of Regina College, the Methodist high school that was the foundation for the creation of the University itself more than 60 years later.
The University of Regina is a very different place than Regina College was 100 years ago. Where there were once only 27 students, there are now more than 12,000--approximately 1,400 of whom come from other countries. The University has 10 faculties, 25 departments, three Federated Colleges, and close to 20 research centres and institutes. In terms of both its physical size and the breadth of its programs, it is an institution that would scarcely be recognizable to those first students and faculty members who began at Regina College in 1911.
This centennial book--which contains archival and modern photographs and accompanying text by historian Dr. James Pitsula--is a striking presentation of that legacy. As the University of Regina marks 100 years of excellence in education on its campus, Honouring Our Past, Embracing Our Future is a tribute to the thousands of students, faculty members, and staff who have contributed to the institution's development over the past century.
Includes an introduction by current University President and Vice-Chancellor, Dr. Vianne Timmons and over 100 photos selected by Dr. Stephen King and Don Hall.
