Administrative history

Mount Saint Vincent University had its origins as an academy for young girls established by the Sisters of Charity in Rockingham (present day Halifax) in 1873. The original purpose of the academy was to train novices and young sisters as teachers, but the Sisters also recognized a need to educate other young women and therefore opened the academy to young women who lived in the city of Halifax. In 1925 the Nova Scotia Legislature passed a bill granting a charter to Mount Saint Vincent College empowering it to grant its own degrees. With that, Mount Saint Vincent College became the only independent women’s college in the British Commonwealth. It offered degrees in Education, Nursing and Arts.

The College continued to grow until 1966, when a new government charter was granted and the College became Mount Saint Vincent University, a co-educational institution. The Mount is a primarily undergraduate public university that offers programs in Arts, Education, Science, and Professional Studies.

Custodial history

Scope and content

This series consists of recordings of lectures given as part of the Seton Lectures. The Elizabeth Seton lecture series was founded in 1978 when the Sisters of Charity established an endowment fund for a lecture series with the general theme of Christian presence in the world. This lectures series was intended to reinforce Mount Saint Vincent University's commitment to understand the truth, intellectual vigour, and social responsibility.

The lecture series is named after the founder of the Sisters of Charity in North America, Elizabeth Seton.
