Merger, Cooperation, Competition: CSB and SJU in the 1960s-1970s

Thursday, May 15, 2014, 10:00-11:30, Gorecki 120

In the summer of 1968 the boards of both CSB and SJU voted to merge our two schools. Our colleague, Sy Theisen was appointed to move the merger along and worked at that job - with mixed results - for two years. Merger did not follow, but cooperation did. Merger from the bottom up, he called it. Drawing on her recent book, Challenging Women Since 1913, Annette will talk about the multiple forces drawing the two together and those that pushed in the opposite direction.
