Empower Women to Lead

As Canada’s only women’s university, Brescia is uniquely positioned to foster and support women’s leadership. Our mission is to prepare women to lead with wisdom, justice and compassion; never has this mission been more important. As we move forward, we will build on the legacy of our Ursuline values, helping young women develop the confidence, creativity and capability to make positive change in the world.

At Brescia, we believe that post-secondary education should be available to all who want to pursue it, regardless of financial status.

A gift to empower women to lead will:

  • Increase the number of bursaries available so more women who will benefit from and contribute to Brescia are able to attend
  • Support scholarships to attract exceptional students who will enrich the academic environment
  • Fortify the curriculum dedicated to women’s leadership
  • Provide teaching excellence in learning styles catered to women

"It would be a positive thing if it wasn’t necessary to have a women’s university today. But the reality is that women have a unique way of learning and contributing, and the world is desperately in need of women’s skills, perspectives and approaches to life."
Sr. Theresa Campeau, Community Leader of the Ursuline Sisters, Chatham, Ontario, Canada
