Chatham University Considers Changes (PA)

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has several good articles by Bill Schackner and Anya Sostek on the possibility that Chatham University's undergraduate program may become coed.  An initial article covers a recent decision by trustees.  

Chatham was founded as Pennsylvania Female College in 1869.  In 1890 the institution changed its name to Pennsylvania College for Women.  Then in 1955 the name became Chatham College and in 2007, Chatham University.

 And, a third article is focused on the comments of alumnae and others familiar with Chatham.
