Edgewood College is a small Dominican Catholic liberal arts college in Madison, Wisconsin, in the Diocese of Madison. Overlooking the shores of Lake Wingra, it occupies 55 acres (223,000 m²) on Madison's near-west side.

The Edgewood College estate was bought and built in 1855 by Mr. Ashmead from Governor Leonard J. Farwell. [Paynter 3-4] The land was later developed by Samuel Marshall. [Paynter 4] He beautified the land by planting trees, formal gardens, and climbing grapevines on trellises. The Edgewood villa was passed from the Marshall to the Governor Cadwallader Colden Washburn in 1873. [Paynter 4] After Washburn bought Edgewood villa, he made it his home to help further his political career. Being a man who lived by the motto “stick and hang,” Cadwallader Washburn donated his Edgewood property to the Dominican Sisters as a gift for educational purposes. [Paynter 16] Mother Mary Emily Power was the one who accepted the gift of the property. In September 1881, advertisements were placed in local newspapers letting it be known that St. Regina Academy -- then a private boarding school for girls -- was open. The school eventually accommodated all grades, kindergarten through college; the latter was founded by three Sinsinawa Dominican Sisters of Sinsinawa, Wisconsin: Mother M. Samuel, Sister M. Thomas Aquinas, and Sister M. Grace. Many Dominican Sisters still live near the campus and participate in its activities. Thanks to the land grant, Edgewood College currently shares grounds with Edgewood High School, Edgewood Campus School, and the Edgewood Nursery School.

The college has an art therapy program and has strong nursing, educational and business tracks. It prides itself on its service to the vocational community, with recent 2005 press releases touting refresher courses for IT professionals. However, it also serves a broader undergraduate liberal arts agenda.

In 2005, the student newspaper ("On the Edge") had finalists in the Associated Press Collegiate Story of the Year contest for their investigative work, having produced several stories which prompted rapid policy changes in response. Jack Vitek is the paper's current adviser.

Mission Statement

Edgewood College, rooted in the Dominican tradition, engages students within a community of learners committed to building a just and compassionate world. The College educates students for meaningful personal and professional lives of ethical leadership, service, and a lifelong search for truth.

Founding

In 1927, the Sinsinawa Dominican Sisters founded Edgewood College as a school of higher learning for Catholic women in the Madison area. [1] The new addition was then the third member of the Edgewood campus complex, which had evolved from 1881's St. Regina Academy. [2]

The Academy was founded when former Wisconsin Governor Cadwallader C. Washburn donated the 55 acre estate to the Dominican Sisters of Sinsinawa; he had lost a recent campaign and knew his health was declining, and his daughter had declined the offer of the property due to a disinclination to live in "the west." [Paynter 7] There are also accounts of Washburn offering Edgewood to the city of Madison, the University of Madison, and the state of Wisconsin.

The property, which at that time consisted of a single villa, was first opened as a school under the name St. Regina Academy in September, 1881. On September 15, 1881, the first 16 boarding and day students were welcomed. During the first years boarding tuition was $165 per year and music lessons were an additional eight to twelve dollars per quarter. [Paynter 19]

In 1893, due to increased growth, construction of a new building (including a granite cornerstone inscribed with the word "Veritas," meaning "truth") was undertaken. Shortly after its completion, on the night of November 16th, a devastating fire took the lives of three of the youngest children attending Regina Academy. Along with the lives lost in the fire, the villa and a nearly completed new building were also destroyed. The future of the school was in doubt after this fatal fire, but the Sisters were determined to “stick and hang”. A benefit concert was quickly organized by friends of the Dominican Sisters at the Fuller Opera House on the Capitol Square the night of November 28; the success of the benefit inspired the Sisters to rebuild at once.

Rebuilding started in 1894, at a cost of $36,719. The new school, now called Sacred Heart Academy, admitted its first 40 students on September 5th, 1894 (Paynter 1,21,23,26). The campus was subsequently expanded to include a high school and an elementary school. On April 6, 1927, three Dominican Sisters first approached the President of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and requested his support through the academic recognition of a junior college for women in Madison. [3] On May 2, 1927, the Sisters got approval for the college bulletin. Student enrollment continued to increase, making it necessary to construct a new building. Ground was broken for the new building on November 4, 1925, and the building was completed on February 23, 1927.

On July 12, 1927, the first matriculation fee was received from Oregon, Wisconsin. On September 4, 1927, Sacred Heart Academy reopened as Edgewood Junior College. [Paynter 33-34] Sister Grace James was appointed as the first prioress and principal; each prioress was nominally also the “president” of the college. Another Sister who was more closely connected with daily instructions was Sister Marie Aileen Klein, who was the first dean of Edgewood College (in addition to teaching English, speech and German.) [6]

The Junior College 1927-1940

Edgewood Junior College opened September 4th, 1927, with the enrollment of twelve women. Mathematics, English, art history, music, philosophy, speech, religion, biology, French, Latin, Greek, and German were offered. Tuition was less than $600 a year (Paynter 31,32) (Gilligan 39). Opening as a college allowed the school to grant diplomas, degrees and distinctions for proficiency in the arts and sciences. As a junior college, Edgewood offered a two-year program strong in the liberal arts. The second year saw fourteen girls enrolled as freshmen and eight as sophomores. [Paynter 33-34] In the next decade, the enrollments averaged about thirty students each year and change came slowly due to America's Great Depression. During the period of 1927-1940, the development of Edgewood College was closely connected to the high school, as the organizations shared facilities, services, and faculties. In 1938, a west wing containing a gymnasium and cafeteria was added to the high school building. The old gymnasium was converted to an auditorium to hold more students’ activities. [7]

The Senior College 1940-1949

Thirteen years after Edgewood Academy became Edgewood Junior College in 1940, Edgewood became a senior four-year college. Edgewood College started its first four-year baccalaureate program at the recommendation of Sister Mary De Ricci. [Paynter 49-52] In 1941, a team of University professors and representatives from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction evaluated the college, granting one year approval for the college to award Bachelor of Science in Education degrees in 1942. [9] During the spring of 1942, Edgewood College received accreditation from the University of Wisconsin; in June of the same year, the first 25 students received their Bachelor of Science in Education degrees. [Paynter 49]

However, the senior college grew slowly and only attracted a few young women to its four-year program. The College saw an influx of older students; many Dominican Sisters, for example, chose to earn degrees in elementary education. On the other hand, the college’s summer sessions attracted many students every August, climaxing in the summers of 1943 and 1944 with the presence of the world-renowned musician Nadia Boulanger of the Ecole Normale in Paris. [10] In 1948 the first international students were enrolled: two from Shanghai, China; one from Cali, Colombia; and one from Arequipa, Peru. [Paynter 59] The first two African-American students were admitted in the 1949-50 school year. [Paynter 79] (The first African-American faculty member, Sharon Wexler, was hired in 1956. [Paynter 69] )

A greater college 1950-1968

In August 1950, Sister Mary Nona McGreal was appointed as the new president of the college and prioress of the Sisters. During her presidency, a new academic criterion was adopted in 1950-1951: seniors were administered the Graduate Record examinations and sophomores a series of tests from the American Council on Education. Several campus organizations, including Kappa Gamma Pi, the national Catholic Honor and Activity Society, were also established in 1951. Meanwhile, more students with different backgrounds and cultures were starting to enroll in the College: three black students were enrolled in 1951; then a Vietnamese student enrolled, followed by Hondurans, Germans, and Columbians. Additionally, the college began in 1951 to assist in students’ preparation as teachers of Saturday classes to involve them in catechetical instruction in the parishes of the Diocese. Edgewood's chorus also formed a broadcast choir to present live programs for the Madison Catholic Hour.

With the efforts of Sister Nona and her colleagues, the college began to receive its share for the first time in 1954 from the Wisconsin Foundation of Independent Colleges (later the Wisconsin Association of Independent Colleges and Universities (WAICU)), where Sister Nona held the presidency from 1966 to 1968. The fund allowed Edgewood to expand campus space for academy and students’ activities. Edgewood was still steadily expanding, adding new buildings and extensions through the support of congregations, alumni, and other donors. Edgewood Campus School, designed from the start as a grade school, was built during this period. In 1955, a new addition (“Marshall Junior”) was built to adjoin the east and south sides of Marshall Hall. Mazzuchelli Biological Station was completed on the shores of Lake Wingra in 1956.

The College held membership in the Council for the Advancement of Small Colleges (CASC) to collaborate with other colleges on a national level. In 1959, Edgewood joined the Association of American Colleges, which further enhanced its opportunities for accreditation. Two years later, the College was recognized by the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE); this was finally formalized in May 1962.

In 1950, there were 84 full time students and a total enrollment of 142. In 1966, there were 744 full time students, and a total enrollment of 1,067. The faculty profile also changed from an almost exclusive roster of Dominican Sisters to a considerably more diverse assortment. In 1954, for the first time, the college faculty was officially separated from the high school faculty. In 1955, there were 12 full-time faculty; there were 67 faculty ten years later. [11] [12]

Turbulent Years 1968-1977

In February 1968, Sister Cecilia was appointed as the new president. She and her committee planned and adopted a new curriculum: reduced the semester hours required for graduation from 128 to 120; changed courses on two-credit and four-credit basis; and revised a core of requirements for humanities, natural sciences, social science, religious studies and studio arts. In the next year, a continuing education program in day and evening schedules was begun and quickly grew from fewer than 100 students to over 500 in 1977.

In the winter of 1970, a huge decision was made. Edgewood College decided that it would operate more effectively if it were co-ed. This helped increase enrollment and strongly increased sports participation. [Paynter 91-92]

Meanwhile, the Associate of Arts two-year program was re-instated in 1974. The Educational Development Committee of the College proposed a Human Issues program in 1975, requiring students to complete a "human issues experience" before qualifying for graduation. [11] [12]

Transition Years 1977-1987

During the presidency of Sister Alice O’Rourke, Edgewood faced numerous challenges including the declining enrollment of traditional-age college students, cost increases, etc. To alleviate the financial burden, the college initiated a significant fund-raising program in the late seventies to celebrate the campus centennial year 1981 (campaign "Edgewood Century II"). Meanwhile, the nursing program received $146,800 from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to implement its first year project. $61,000 was granted by the National Science Foundation to strengthen the undergraduate science education in the same year.

In 1979, some new programs began: a baccalaureate program in nursing, a weekend degree program for business majors, a "Communication Skills" component of the new general education requirements, and an "Education for Parish Service" by the Religious Studies department. Even though the college had extremely low enrollment figures of only 479 in 1978-1979, enrollment was up to 667 in 1982 as the new programs began. In December 1983, a baccalaureate program in nursing was accredited by the National League of Nursing. In 1985, faculty members formalized a new interdisciplinary academic program when the Women's Studies minor was approved. In the same year, the Business Department was offered a Master’s degree program by the North Central Association due to deficiency of budgets and faculties for other majors; the North Central Association formally approved Master’s degree programs in business, education, and religious studies in 1986. [11] [12]

In 1983, Sister Mary Ewens became the president of Edgewood College. She set up a five-year budgeting planning committee to deal with budget deficits, causing the elimination of the position of the Human Issues director, the athletic director, the inter-collegiate department program, and all theater courses and student productions. Over the next few years, the college received many sustaining gifts and donations from companies and foundations; the largest donation of $50,000 came from the Oscar Rennebohm Foundation in 1985.

Building Boom 1988-2002

In 1988, for the first time in the school’s history, a president was selected who was neither female nor a Dominican Sister: James Ebben. In his first year of his tenure, the gym was renovated to meet minimum requirements for capacity and court length, and renamed the Todd Wehr Edgedome to honor its primary donor; this coincided with plans by Steve Larson, who had become athletic director in 1986, to rebuild the college's athletic program. At the same time, relationships with neighborhood associations, the community and the other Edgewood schools were gradually established or restored.

With a grant from the Oscar Rennebohm Foundation, Weber Hall reconstruction began in 1990. Weber Hall was first constructed in the mid-1960s. With construction of this new hall, the college required a new road to allow people to get to Edgewood Campus; in response, they created Pleasure Drive along Lake Wingra, a scenic lakeshore drive connecting Edgewood to Vilas. The drive allowed parents to drop their kids off and pick up their kids from the Campus School, greatly reducing traffic on other side streets. In 1994, a newly constructed resident hall was dedicated to Sister Marie Stephen Reges. Also called “Stevie” Hall, this was the first new residence hall constructed since Weber Hall in the 1960s.

Library construction also began in 1999. The library was granted with a gorgeous reading and reference area with many windows looking out over the campus and Lake Wingra. Included were stacks of books, offices, Bernadine Clapp Archives, a computer lab, and classrooms.

In May 1997, Edgewood received a conditional use permit that included not only a multi-story science building but also a parking structure, a new main entrance to campus, and reconstructed athletic fields. Construction of the Sonderegger Science Center began mere months later and was completed in 1999; the Sonderegger family and the Oscar Rennebohm Foundation had donated $3,000,000 to Edgewood for its construction. (The Sonderegger building is also unique in that it was intended to be used by the college, high school, and grade school as a shared science facility.) Two months after the Sonderegger Science Center was dedicated, the Henry J. Predolin Humanities Center was dedicated.

Meanwhile, multiple efforts raised the retention rate from 62% in 1994 to 75% in 2001, when the-full time students numbered 1217. The demographics of the student body also changed dramatically: the proportion of Roman Catholics among the students was 88% in 1958, but only 38% in 2001. The number of international students peaked in 1997, with 116 individuals from 30 countries on campus. The college strengthened its international ties by visiting countries in Asia with the support of national funding. In 2001, Judith Wimmer (then the Academic Dean) traveled to Vajiravudh College in Thailand.

Additional Master's degree programs were approved in the fields of Nursing Administration and Marriage and Family Therapy by the North Central Association in 1994. In 1996, Edgewood College received unconditional approval for the development of new programs at the Master’s level. In 1999, the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education also accredited the nursing programs. Two programs (Honors program and the Challenge program) targeting the needs of specific groups of students were developed during the late 1980s.

The college’s new undergraduate degree program (the Bachelor of Business Administration degree) began in the fall of 2002. [11] [12]

Edgewood College Today 2002-Present

As of Spring 2008, nearly 2,550 students are enrolled at Edgewood College. About 1500 of those are full-time undergraduates, 450 are part-time undergraduates, and 530 are in a graduate program. Edgewood College tries to maintain freshman class size at around 300.

Athletics

College athletics are a big part of not only the students, but the fans and surrounding Madison area as well. Sports have a way of bringing people together to support their schools and to show their team spirit. Edgewood College offers many different sports for both men and women. Women's athletics at Edgewood College first began in 1975. They were in the Wisconsin Independent Colleges Women’s Athletic Conference (WIC-WAC). The men’s athletic teams were first in the Wisconsin Conference of Independent Colleges in 1974. In 1981, the conference administrators wanted to change the name for the conference and decided on the Lake Michigan Conference. The Lake Michigan men’s programs and the WIC-WAC women’s programs wanted to exist in the same conference. In the 1989-90 all the members left of the WIC-WAC women’s conference joined the Lake Michigan Conference. (lakemichiganconference.org)

In the Lake Michigan Conference, Edgewood won 35 conference titles. The men’s athletics won 8 conference titles; men’s basketball in 1991-92, 1992-93, 2000-01, men’s golf in 2005, men’s soccer in 1996 and 2000, and baseball in 2005 and 2006. The women’s athletics won 27 conference titles; women’s basketball in 1991-92, 1992-93, 2000-01, 2004-05, women’s cross country in 2003, women’s soccer in 1994-2000 and 2005, softball in 1994, 1996, 2005, 2006, women’s golf in 1999 and 2004, women’s tennis in 1991-97 and 2000, and volleyball 1994 and 1996.

The 2005-06 was the last year of the Lake Michigan Conference. In 2006, all Lake Michigan conference members joined the newly created Northern Athletics Conference. The Northern Athletic Conference consists of 13 colleges and universities; Alverno College, Aurora University, Benedictine University, Concordia University Chicago, Concordia University Wisconsin, Dominican University, Edgewood College, Lakeland College, Maranatha Baptist Bible College, Marian College, Rockford College, Wisconsin Lutheran College, and Milwaukee School of Engineering. The Northern Athletics Conference is an NCAA Division III member conference. (northenathleticsconf.com)
