Peace Studies Origins: From Mundelein College to Loyola University Chicago
The Peace Studies Origins: From Mundelein College to Loyola University Chicago digital exhibit documents the story of Mundelein College’s Peace Studies program and how the program became an interdisciplinary minor at Loyola University Chicago, when Mundelein College affiliated with Loyola in 1991. Funding for this oral history project came from Professor Kathleen Maas Weigert, the first Carolyn Farrell, BVM, Professor in Women and Leadership, through the Gannon Center for Women and Leadership at Loyola University Chicago. She now serves as a professor of Sociology at the university. Professor Maas Weigert partnered with the Women and Leadership Archives (WLA) for the project as the WLA holds the records of Mundelein College and their Peace Studies program.
