Assumption University is celebrating 165 years of higher education in Windsor-Essex.

On February 10th, 1857, Assumption College opened its doors and welcomed its first cohort of students.

To mark this anniversary, Assumption University will celebrate a special online liturgy at Our Lady of the Assumption Church on June 18th, 2022. The service will be presided over by the Most Reverend Ronald Peter Fabbro, CSB, Bishop of London and Chancellor of Assumption University.

At this service, three distinguished individuals will be recognized.
