On Sept. 27, 2011, three institutional archives, the University of St. Michael's College, the Sisters of Loretto and the Sisters of St. Joseph of Toronto, partnered to mark the 100th anniversary of women's education at St. Michael's. Originally, women were not admitted to St. Michael's College. The Sisters of St. Joseph and the Loretto Sisters, however, were committed to offering young women an education, and in 1911, they opened two women's colleges: St. Joseph's College and Loretto College. They were the first to offer women a university education under Catholic auspices through St. Michael's College at the University of Toronto.
