Overview

Because of its early history of westward expansion and its diverse population, Ohio is the home to many independent institutions of higher education. They range from prestigious and richly endowed colleges and universities to local and regional ones that have served their student populace admirably over the decades. Cradles of Conscience is a collection of essays that recounts the circumstances surrounding the founding of 40 of these institutions, relates the history of each one since its inception, and discusses how each has coped with modernization and how the pressures of the past 25 years have forced them to evaluate and reassess their identities and missions. Historians and educators will find this book invaluable as a record of the successes and failures of educational strategy, as well as a history of higher education in Ohio.
