Columbia College Book Description

by Paulina Ann Batterson, Columbia College Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Columbia College books, Columbia College, formerly known as Christian College, was founded in 1851 in the small frontier town of Columbia, Missouri. Touted as the first women's college west of the Mississippi River, Columbia College emerged as virtually a sister college to the University of Missouri, sharing leadership, faculty, and curriculum. Covering each of the school's presidential administrations, Columbia College examines all aspects of the college--academic, administrative, financial, athletic, and student life. Particular emphasis is placed on the role various individuals played over the years. Although created through the zealous efforts of progressive leaders of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), the college was bound by its charter to be nondenominational—an issue that sometimes led to passionate sectarian quarrels within the fledgling institution. Despite pre-Civil War political differences, denominational rivalries, and personality clashes, the college struggled to survive. Through 150 years of continuity and change, Columbia College has tenaciously upheld its liberal-arts tradition as a teaching-centered institution, seeking innovative ways to broaden educational horizons and meet the needs of new generations. From the sheltered environment of Christian Female College, Columbia College has evolved into a modern coeducational institution with twenty-four military and civilian extended campuses across the United States and in Puerto Rico and a thriving evening campus that specializes in adult education. Columbia College will be of great interest to Columbia College alumni, as well as to anyone with an interest in liberal arts and adult education. Those wishing to preserve the endangered tradition of the small private college will find the Columbia College experience not only an inspiration, but also a lesson in creativity, loyalty, and dedication.

Chinese In St Louis 1857 2007 Book Description

by Huping Ling, Chinese In St Louis 1857 2007 Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Chinese In St Louis 1857 2007 books, In 1857, Alla Lee, a 24yearold native of Ningbo, China, seeking a better life, came to St. Louis. A decade later, Lee was joined by several hundred of his countrymen from San Francisco and New York who were seeking jobs in mines and factories in and around St. Louis. Most of these Chinese workers lived in boardinghouses located near a street called Hop Alley. In time, Chinese hand laundries, merchandise stores, herb shops, restaurants, and clan association headquarters sprang up in and around that street, forming St. Louis Chinatown. Hop Alley survived with remarkable resilience and energy until 1966 when urban renewal bulldozers leveled the area to make a parking lot for Busch Stadium. A new suburban Chinese American community has been quietly, yet rapidly, emerging since the 1960s in the form of cultural community, where the Chinese churches, Chineselanguage schools, and community organizations serve as the infrastructure of the community.

Asian America Book Description

by Huping Ling, Asian America Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Asian America books, The last half century witnessed a dramatic change in the geographic, ethnographic, and socioeconomic structure of Asian American communities. While traditional enclaves were strengthened by waves of recent immigrants, native-born Asian Americans also created new urban and suburban areas. Asian America is the first comprehensive look at post-1960s Asian American communities in the United States and Canada. From Chinese Americans in Chicagoland to Vietnamese Americans in Orange County, this multi-disciplinary collection spans a wide comparative and panoramic scope. Contributors from an array of academic fields focus on global views of Asian American communities as well as on territorial and cultural boundaries. Presenting groundbreaking perspectives, Asian America revises worn assumptions and examines current challenges Asian American communities face in the twenty-first century.
