Brief history

Family and Community Education started as a program within the Department of Home and Family Life (19??-1976). The program was created in 196? under the inspiration of Lawrence Cremin. The first faculty of the new program was Professor Hope Leichter who joined the faculty in that department in 196?. Prof. Leichter chaired the department and worked at its transformation.

Her two papers (1975, 1979) can be considered the founding documents explaining what the department was to be.

In 1976, Home and Family Life became Family and Community Education. Prof. Leichter chaired the department until 198? when Professor Varenne replaced her.

The Department was closed in 1990.
