Education: Adrian College at 150 (John Eipper, US) (John Eipper, USA, 03/28/09 6:56 am)

JE writes: Today marks the 150th anniversary of the granting of Adrian College's charter (28 March 1859). Founded by the abolitionist Methodist clergyman Asa Mahan, who had earlier founded Oberlin College (Ohio), Adrian from the outset embraced the concepts of equal educational opportunities for women and African-Americans. The first female student graduated from the College in 1864. Yesterday (27 March), President Jeffrey Docking delivered the following thoughts in his Sesquicentennial "State of the College" address: http://www.adrian.edu/news/3_09state-of-the-college.php JE, again: I have been at Adrian for nine of the College's 150 years, and under President Docking's guidance since 2005, the College has seen significant enrollment growth and a number of capital improvements, including the total renovation in the summer of 2008 of the Goldsmith Center, now home to the Department of Modern Languages and Cultures (in my day job I am the Chair of MLC). AC has been successful in maintaining its mood of optimism, despite the dreadful economic conditions prevailing in Michigan. I must go on public record that President Docking and Dean Dale Nesbary have been very supportive of my relationship with WAIS, as they have granted me a one-course-per-semester release from my teaching obligations, so that I can better devote the 40 + hours/week necessary to keep WAIS on-line each day. I thank them for this. In turn, I trust that WAIS, its worldwide association of Fellows, and its significant presence on the Internet has brought greater name recognition to our small and "tucked away" College ("tucked away"--Prof. Hilton's words when he first introduced me to WAISdom in 2000), which for a century and a half has been a very special place for its students, faculty, and alumni.
