This history recounts the courage and determination of the Sisters of Charity to establish Mount Saint Vincent University, the only degree-granting college for women in Canada. It concentrates on the dramatic growth witnessed by the institution over the course of the late 20th century as religious, social, and political changes in broader society opened up new opportunities for women. The institution's dedication to the educational needs of women has made it a pioneer in creative programming that is aimed at preparing its students to meet the challenges of contemporary society. As a chronicle of the events surrounding the educational advancement of women in Canada, this book provides unique insight on the direction that higher education by and for women should take.
