Saint Paul University History;The origin of Saint Paul University dates back to September 26, 1848, when “The College of Bytown” was founded by Bishop Joseph-Eugène Guigues, O.M.I., who in 1856 officially entrusted the College to the Oblates of Mary Immaculate.In 1861 the College of Bytown was renamed “College of Ottawa” and on August 1866, was granted university status by the Government of the Union of Canada. By letters of Leo XIII, dated February 5, 1889, the College of Ottawa was granted the pontifical charter.To meet the requirements of Pius XI’s Apostolic Constitution, Deus Scientiarum Dominus, on the reorganization of Catholic universities, the administration revised its pontifical charter which was subsequently approved by Rome on November 15, 1934. The civil charter, which had been rewritten, was approved on April 18, 1933 by the Ontario Provincial Legislature and the University was henceforth officially known as “University of Ottawa”.In the years following World War II, the University progressed rapidly and by 1965, had established nine faculties and four schools. The year 1965 marked the end of one era and the beginning of another. On July 1st, through an Act of the Ontario Provincial Legislature and after laborious negociations between the University and the Provincial Government, the institution heretofore designated as the University of Ottawa became Saint Paul University, nonetheless keeping its civil and canonical charters. At the same time the Provincial Government formed a new institution to be known as the University of Ottawa to which Saint Paul University conceded the majority of its holdings. The two Universities became a federated complex and according to mutual agreement were to share faculties.In addition to conferring its own degrees, Saint Paul University reserves the right to present its candidates to the Senate of the University of Ottawa for the joint conferment (Saint Paul University - University of Ottawa) of its certificates, diplomas and civil degrees.Both Universities consider themselves complementary institutions. Saint Paul University appoints eight members to the Board of Governors of the University of Ottawa.The Rector of Saint Paul University is a member of the Senate of the University of Ottawa, and the Faculties of Saint Paul University are also represented in the academic Senate of the University of Ottawa by their Dean, Secretary and a professor elected by his or her colleagues. Moreover, the two Universities benefit from a mutual exchange of professors and they mutually recognize their courses.Saint Paul University with strong traditions is fully aware of its special mission and possibilities. Its geographical location, its bilingual character, its federation with the University of Ottawa, its competent and diversified teaching staff, contribute to the quality of the academic training and the Christian culture which it endeavours to guarantee.
圣保罗大学的起源可以追溯到1848年9月26日，当时，“Bytown学院”由OMI主教Joseph-EugèneGuigues主教创立，他于1856年正式委托学院到玛丽圣母无教堂。1861年，Bytown学院更名为“渥太华学院”，1866年8月被加拿大联邦政府授予大学地位。1889年2月5日，由狮子座十三世的信件，渥太华学院被授予教皇章程。为了满足“庇护十一世使徒宪法”的要求，对于天主教大学的重组，行政部门修改了其1944年11月15日由罗马批准的宪章，修改了宪法修改的宪法，修改后的民事宪章获得通过1933年4月18日由安大略省立法机关和大学从此被称为“渥太华大学”。在第二次世界大战后的几年中，大学进展迅速，到1965年，已经建立了九个学院和四所学校。1965年是一个时代的结束，另一个时代的开始。7月1日，通过安大略省立法机关的一项法令，经大学与省政府的艰苦努力，以前被指定为渥太华大学的机构成为圣保罗大学，但保留了公民和经典宪章。同时，省政府组建了一个被称为渥太华大学的新机构，圣保罗大学承认其大部分持股。两所大学成为一个联合大院，根据相互协议，除了授予自己大学的学位，圣保罗大学保留向候选人提交渥太华大学参议院的权利以获得其证书，文凭和民事学位的联合授权(圣保罗大学 - 渥太华大学)。两个大学认为自己是互补机构。圣保罗大学任命八名成员到渥太华大学理事会。圣保罗大学校长是渥太华大学参议院的成员，圣保罗大学的学院也代表参加了渥太华大学的院长，秘书和由他或她的同事选出的教授。此外，两所大学互相交换教育，互相认可他们的课程。具有强烈传统的圣保罗大学充分意识到其特殊使命和可能性。其地理位置、双语特色与渥太华大学联合，其主管和多元化的教学人员，有助于学术培训的质量和努力保证的基督教文化。
