St John's College is a small, Anglican College located on the University of Manitoba campus in Winnipeg. St John's College was officially opened by Bishop Robert Machray on November 1, 1866 but the College's roots lie in the early years of the Red River Settlement.
In 1877 St John's College, St Boniface College and the Manitoba College became the founding colleges in the University of Manitoba; however, the College has maintained its strong connection to the Anglican Church.
St John’s College is founded on the principles of unity and as a result seeks to foster an internal and external communal environment that unifies both students, members, and the public. In addition, the College supports the promotion of student experience, service, and success, as it focuses on the delivery of a collaborative and innovative post-secondary education engulfing its vision and values.
Initiatives pursued by the St John’s College include:
- Academic Enhancement
- Supporting and Developing the Fellowship
- Student Facility Creation and Maintenance
- Healthy Community
- Individual Development
- Embracing diversity
- Advocation for Social Justice and Human Rights.
