title A Day in the Life of St. Dunstan's University
creator MacDonald, Edward
subject Island Magazine
subject Prince Edward Island Museum
description What follows is an excerpt from a book-in-progress. Its subject is St. Dunstan's University, for 114 years the centre of Roman Catholic higher education on Prince Edward Island. The school was founded in 1855 on a small hill just outside Charlottetown, the colonial capital. Its purpose was both narrow and broad: to educate prospective priests for a priest-poor diocese, and to impart a Catholic education to those who could somehow afford it. Despite a poverty of resources, both human and material, St. Dunstan's developed and refined that mission over eleven difficult decades.
