More than 150 colleges in the United States were founded by nuns, and over time they have served many constituencies, setting some educational trends while reflecting others. In Catholic Women's Colleges in America, Tracy Schier, Cynthia Russett, and their coauthors provide a comprehensive history of these institutions and how they met the challenges of broader educational change. The authors explore how and for whom the colleges were founded and the role of Catholic nuns in their founding and development. They examine the roots of the founders' spirituality and education; they discuss curricula, administration, and student life. And they describe the changes prompted by both the church and society beginning in the 1960s, when decreasing enrollments led some colleges to opt for coeducation, while others restructured their curricula, partnered with other Catholic colleges, developed specialized programs, or sought to broaden their base of funding.

Recensioner i media

A richly documented and provocatively analyzed work. -- Fernanda Perrone * History of Education Quarterly * Kudos to Schier and Russet for providing this book as a catalyst and charging scholars to continue work they have begun. Anyone interested in the history of higher education should read it as a first step in understanding a group of colleges that has been invisible and ignored. Anyone interested in women's issues should read it for its story of female initiative on a grand scale. -- Sylvia Simmons * Connection * This is a valuable book. I consider myself well-informed about US Catholic women's colleges in the twentieth century, but I learned a great deal from it... A much-needed supplement to the standard histories of Catholic education. -- Regina Bannan * Equal wRites * Outstanding... This excellent anthology should be included in future research and teaching for historians of education, American Catholicism, and American women. -- Carol K. Coburn * Journal of American History * A much needed exploration of these unique institutions. -- Sandra Yocum Mize * Religious Studies Review * This book will be welcome by all interested in an inclusionary history of American Catholic life. -- Margaret Mary Reher * American Catholic Studies * Renn boldly engages the complexities of women's lives globally, giving careful attention to the intersections of gender, culture, economics, and education... Women's Colleges and Universities in a Global Context is a rich resource for researchers and students interested in women's issues and the role of higher education in transforming the climate for women's equity across the world... With this book, Renn has further confirmed her well-deserved reputation as a preeminent scholar of higher education both within the US and internationally. * Journal of College Student Development *
