Mission & Vision
Campion College is a Jesuit Catholic community of learning, federated with the University of Regina. It provides a liberal arts education dedicated to the development of the whole person—intellectually, spiritually, socially—for service within society.
At Campion College, we believe that a university is more than bricks and mortar, that education does not stop when classes end. The Jesuit philosophy of “Cura Personalis” or “Care for the Whole Person” is reflected in the College’s encouragement of students to pursue a well-rounded approach to their development.
By combining this experience with studies in Arts, Fine Arts, Science, and Pre-Professional Programs, graduates leave with the communication, research, creative-thinking, and decision-making skills necessary to succeed in today’s rapidly changing world.
