Renison University College
Renison was founded as a result of the efforts of Anglican laity in Kitchener and Waterloo and under the authority of the Synod of the Diocese of Huron. It was incorporated on January 14,1959, by a charter of the Province of Ontario. Renison continues to enjoy support from the community and, in particular, from within the Diocese. Renison was named in memory of Robert John Renison, 1875-1957, a former Metropolitan of Ontario and Archbishop of Moosonee. On July 1,1960, it entered an affiliation with the University of Waterloo with the right to offer courses and programmes in Arts and the Social Sciences for credit towards the Bachelor of Arts degree of the University.
