University Description
The roots of Nipissing University date back to 1947, when residents of North Bay formed a committee with the goal of establishing a university within the city. The 1958 Northeastern University Committee continued their efforts in the following years. By 1960, Northeastern University was established[4] and for a short time in 1960-61, the institution offered first year university courses in Arts, Science, and Commerce in facilities provided by a local Catholic boys' high school. However, Northeastern University's application to the Ontario Ministry of Education for a degree-granting university charter was denied on February 28, 1961, and the classes ended shortly thereafter.
