Brandon University, Brandon, Manitoba, was founded in 1967. Brandon College, developed by the Baptist Convention of Manitoba and the North-West in 1899, was affiliated with the University of Manitoba until 1911, and then with McMaster University 1910-38. It became nondenominational in 1938 and rejoined U of Manitoba until 1967, when it received its own charter.
Brandon U offers both undergraduate and graduate courses in arts, science, education and music. It is currently the home base for the SCOPE (Study of Cultural Adaptations in the Canadian Prairie Ecozone) project.
Brandon University's colours are navy and gold.
