WELCOME HOME! A word from our rector, Chantal Beauvais

A word about our rector, Chantal Beauvais

If you could meet only one of the many people who steer Saint Paul University, it should be our captain, Chantal Beauvais. SPU’s senior administrator, she holds a doctorate in philosophy and is a long-standing champion of reconciliation with the First Peoples of Canada. An avid nature lover, she is also an expert camper! You’ll recognize her easily by her wonderful smile, her statuesque figure and her great sense of humour.

Welcome to Saint Paul!

We are happy and proud to welcome you to Saint Paul University.
Whether you are new among us or returning after a well-deserved summer break, you are all about to experience a memorable human adventure.


Succeeding at Saint Paul University is about more than getting excellent marks. It is also, and above all, about getting to know yourself, achieving your goals and putting your talents at the service of others. It’s committing yourself to building a stronger, more inclusive and more humane society. It’s opening your heart and mind to become the best version of yourself – for you and for the community!

That is the kind of success I wish for each of you, from the bottom of my heart.


Orientation 2018 is your back-to-school experience! This is an ideal opportunity to meet your professors and classmates, take part in activities and talk to student ambassadors to get answers to your questions.

You have arrived at SPU at a pivotal moment in its history. Throughout your time here, you will see many new initiatives unfold. From the total renovation of our Library, to the creation of Indigenous programs, to the establishing of block learning (intensive sessions) at the Élisabeth-Bruyère School of Social Innovation, a first of its kind in North America, you will be the front-row observers of a multifaceted transformation.


Undoubtedly, you also will experience a transformation. Don’t worry: our dedicated professors and our capable staff will always be there to guide you along the way. We are convinced that you will meet future challenges at Saint Paul University with enthusiasm.

Take a deep breath. Seize the moment. Look straight ahead and get ready to “be the face of change”!
Happy back-to-school and all the best!

Chantal Beauvais
