The late 1950s - the time of our founding - was an exciting period in the history of higher education in Canada. More students were going to university than ever before. In fact, enrolment was expected to double by the following decade - an unprecedented amount of growth. Students were enrolling in record numbers because they were witnessing the link between postsecondary education and scientific and economic advances. Some would argue that the launching of Sputnik 1, the Soviet space satellite, prompted this realization, symbolizing Cold War competition in advancing science and technology. It was a catalyst for change, and from it stemmed a great wave of planning for university expansion and growth. Since most universities were reticent to expand, the only alternative was to create more universities - and hence the birth of York University. We are frequently referred to as the first of this new crop.
York was incorporated in 1959, with the biggest task ahead being the actual development of the University, particularly its future character. After much deliberation by York's Board of Governors, it was decided that the University would consist of a residential college, known as Glendon College; an evening college for part-time adult students from different backgrounds, generations and socio-economic circumstances, known as Atkinson College; and a large, urban, multi-Faculty campus that would eventually accommodate 7,000 to 10,000 students, known today as our Keele campus.
Brandon University is located in the heart of Canada. Geographically, Brandon, a city of 50,000, is located in the western part of Manitoba, one hour north of the Canada-United States border. Brandon is a dynamic community which serves a rich agricultural and farming region. It is a very beautiful city, dotted with lots of parks, many along the Assiniboine River that winds its way through the valley. Brandon delivers excellent social, cultural and sporting opportunities - many available at Brandon University itself. The Centennial Auditorium is located on the campus and our own School of Music organizes an extensive and varied program of events. Brandon has film, jazz and folk festivals, and the Royal Manitoba Winter Fair is a major attraction you should not miss. The Keystone Centre hosts local, provincial, national and international sporting events, as well as musical and cultural events. Brandon is a city of just the right proportion: big enough to offer all the benefits of city life, but small enough to remain warm and friendly.
