About Saint Paul University
Saint Paul University is a bilingual institution located in the nation’s capital. With its roots in the Catholic tradition, the University’s academic values are focused on creating a more just and humane future.
SPU offers a wide range of undergraduate and graduate programs. In addition to our founding disciplines—canon law, philosophy, and theology—we offer courses in social communication, social innovation, transformative leadership, counselling and psychotherapy, public ethics, conflict studies, and human relations and spirituality.

From courses focused on relevant social issues to the low student to professor ratio that allows for more interactive teaching, SPU students receive a personalized university experience that fosters personal growth and academic and professional success.
