Voices from Mundelein: Media Portal

Voices from Mundelein Media Portal documents the experiences of members of the Mundelein College community during the institution’s operation between 1930 and 1991. The portal showcases the stories of women religious as part of the Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary (BVMs) who operated the school, as well as led instruction of the college’s courses. The site also contains recollections of the college’s alumnae as they reflect on classes, extracurricular activities, and periods of religious and political change. Lastly, Voices from Mundelein features the experiences of lay faculty and staff as they shaped and transformed Mundelein College from the 1960s onward into a more inclusive institution for people of color and adult students.

Voices from Mundelein: Media Portal was created by Nathan Ellstrand and Janette Clay on behalf of the Women and Leadership Archives (WLA) at Loyola University Chicago.  Funding was provided by the Loyola University Chicago Libraries.  Special thanks goes to Nancy Freeman, WLA Director, Laura Berfield, WLA Assistant Archivist, and Margaret Heller, Digital Services Librarian, for their inspiration and support.
