The Quebec Public University was born in this province as a demand of the student population that did not have access to a higher education system in the French language. A very small group of students were able to complete the admission application, the rest were relegated to not meeting their expectations for academic progress. In 1968 the National Assembly created a system of projects to facilitate the entrance to the university to a greater number of students, committing themselves to this population mass to fulfill their demands. However, these protests largely failed and later the Government of Quebec through a resolution created a new network of French-speaking universities. Five universities are established over two years in order to accommodate the large number of applicants for places, which would be located in cities throughout the region in order to achieve a balance in terms of study opportunities. In the mid-1970s, a sixth university was created that would complete this system.
