  • Biographical or Historical Information

    With the arrival of President Herrick Young, Western College began travel seminars. The world was divided into four areas - Latin America, Middle East, Far East, and Africa—toured by Western students during summer Seminar trips, following a year of intensive study of the region. A faculty-recommended plan to develop “a broad program of international education” was introduced on June 1, 1953. It included new courses, an increase in the number of students from abroad, and the appointment of international scholars as faculty. President Young further refined the plan by establishing a four-year study cycle of these “areas of special interest.”

    Western College was founded in 1853 as the 'western' representation of Mt. Holyoke in Massachusetts, with its dual vision of missionary zeal and low-cost yet high-quality education for women. Strongly supported by the leaders of the Presbyterian Church of Oxford, classes at the Western Female Seminary began in 1855 with Helen Peabody, a Mt. Holyoke graduate, as principal.

    In 1888, Western was moving toward becoming accredited as a College and chose Leila S. McKee, a Wellesley graduate, as the new principal. In 1894, Western became "The Western: A College and Seminary for Women;" in 1904, the word "seminary" was dropped and Western became "The Western College for Women."

    For the next fifty years, Western remained a general liberal arts college, primarily under the presidency of William W. Boyd. With the arrival of President Herrick B. Young in 1954, an international focus began. Many international students and faculty were recruited, international travel seminars were instituted, and a global emphasis was added to the curriculum.

    In 1970, an innovative interdisciplinary approach to education called "Freedom with Responsibility" was initiated under the leadership of President William C. Spencer. Another new direction was the decision in 1971 to admit men.

    Faced with major financial difficulties, Western College closed in 1974 and the physical facilities merged with Miami University.
