University of Providence Celebrates 90 Years of Catholic Education
The University of Providence, formerly the College of Great Falls, began in 1932 at the invitation of the local bishop as a women’s college under the direction of the Diocese of Great Falls. It soon expanded to other academic ministries.
“Today the university continues to honor the [Sisters of Providence’s] aspirational vision by providing an enriched education that goes beyond schooling. Mission-driven and guided by the teachings of Jesus Christ, students are supported in their pursuit of academic excellence and provided an innovative and emboldened environment for personal development,” says the university’s website.
