Université de Moncton was founded 19 June 1963 by the New Brunswick legislature in accordance with the recommendations of a royal commission. U de Moncton began with the amalgamation of 3 institutions which agreed to suspend their charters in order to become affiliated colleges: Saint-Joseph (founded 1864), Sacré-Coeur (1899) and Saint-Louis (1946). As amended in 1977, the university's charter authorized campuses in each of New Brunswick's 3 francophone regions, in Moncton, Edmundston and Shippagan. Its academic programs are divided among 6 faculties (arts, science, administration, social sciences, education and postgraduate studies) and 7 schools (law, forestry, nutrition and family studies, nursing, engineering, physical education and recreation, and social work). Unique research centres include the Centre for Acadian Studies, the Canadian Institute for Research and Regional Development, the Legal Translation and Terminology Centre and the International Centre for Common Law. U de Moncton has around 4700 full-time and 1400 part-time students.
