DR. MARJORY R. KERR, Ph.D.
President of Booth University College
As September approaches my mind often returns to my own days as a student. My first day on campus as an undergraduate was long before the internet when registration was a paper-based process that included several hours of standing in too many long lines to collect cards for courses, pay tuition and eventually receive papers stamped “paid”. It was a sunny, September day in Vancouver when I finally emerged from the gym at UBC and I remember thinking “this is going to be great!”
I hope you approach the coming academic year at Booth UC with similar excitement and anticipation whether you are new to campus or a returning student.
Booth UC has a wonderful record of delivering academic excellence and service. The core of our Mission is the integration of Christian faith, rigorous scholarship and a passion for service. For 34 years Booth students, graduates, faculty and staff have embodied these qualities in Winnipeg and beyond. Building on the strengths of our academic programs, exceptional faculty and staff, a clear strategy for the future and a growing student body, we are providing students with an outstanding education that will equip them to be transforming influences in their communities, professions and relationships; and we are committed to delivering Education for a Better World.

Office of the President,
447 Webb Place, Winnipeg, Manitoba,
Thessalonians 5:21 challenges us to “test everything, hold on to the good”. One of my goals as President is to help Booth UC do that, and to be open to it myself. This is a verse that I discovered as a university student and it has been part of my life ever since. As you begin your studies this year come prepared to, “test everything, hold on to the good”. It’s not an invitation to try everything – there is a difference! But it is an invitation to test – to evaluate, consider, question, debate and engage in dialogue. This is learning; this is education. Booth UC provides you a unique opportunity to pursue your education in the context of faith, scholarship and relationship. I hope that excites you as much as it does me.
If you are already a Booth UC student, welcome to a new academic year. May you be challenged in your understanding and worldview, may you wrestle with significant questions of life and learning, and may you find grace in it all.
If you are exploring where and how you might pursue your undergraduate education, I invite you to consider Booth UC. For more information about Booth University College you can explore our website or contact the Admissions office.
