Renison University College - University of Waterloo
Waterloo, Canada


University description (as per official university website)

History of Renison

Renison was founded as a result of the efforts of Anglican laity in Kitchener and Waterloo and under the authority of the Synod of the Diocese of Huron. It was incorporated on January 14,1959, by a charter of the Province of Ontario. Renison continues to enjoy support from the community and, in particular, from within the Diocese.

Renison was named in memory of Robert John Renison, 1875-1957, a former Metropolitan of Ontario and Archbishop of Moosonee. On July 1,1960, it entered an affiliation with the University of Waterloo with the right to offer courses and programmes in Arts and the Social Sciences for credit towards the Bachelor of Arts degree of the University.

The University transferred five acres of land on the west side of its campus to Renison in 1961, and Renison purchased an additional acre. That same year, an appeal was launched which raised the funds to undertake construction of Renison's first building. This building provided offices, classrooms, and two residence wings to house forty men and forty women. A second building was erected in 1964 to provide additional academic and residence space. Today Renison's residences provide accommodation for two hundred and twenty residents.

Mission Statement
"In the spirit of the Anglican tradition, Renison University College, an affiliate of the University of Waterloo, is committed to providing a strong grounding in the Humanities and Social Sciences, thereby instilling in its students a life-long love of learning, pursuit of truth, and dedication to community service."

Renison University College makes a valuable contribution to the greater University community by providing the setting that makes excellent undergraduate learning possible. Committed faculty, small classes, and a strong sense of community are among the elements that have made Renison a success.

The College offers programmes and courses leading to the Bachelor of Arts and to the Honours Bachelor of Social Work degree of the University of Waterloo. Through its programmes, Renison seeks to prepare students for careers in various helping professions, including social work, education, law and the ministry. The College also strives to provide students with a strong liberal arts education. In conjunction with courses available from the University at large, the College assists students to develop a sound programme in the arts, thereby increasing their awareness and appreciation of themselves and their potential both as individuals and as citizens of the world. It endeavours to ensure they have encountered the best of literature and philosophy, some of the great findings of the sciences, and some of the great creations of arts and culture. It seeks to familiarise students with the methodologies of the academic disciplines within which they work and the assumptions upon which these disciplines rest. Renison University College also assists students to develop the skills to express their own ideas with precision and eloquence.

Through its residence, Renison offers accommodation for students following its programmes and for those studying elsewhere in the University. It provides an intimate setting where students of all religious persuasions or spiritual outlooks may live and learn while enjoying all the resources of a major university.
