Administrative History

The Principal’s Office was created in 1928 when Emmanuel College was founded. The College was established as a result of the formation of The United Church of Canada in 1925 and formed with the intention of continuing the tradition of theological education established earlier by Canadian Methodists and Presbyterians.

The Principal is head of the College, and thus responsible for its academic program, life and work.
