Title
Loyola of Montreal: A Sociological Analysis of an Educational Institution in Transition Between 1969-1974
Abstract
Primarily focused on Montreal's Loyola College (now part of Concordia University) between 1969 and 1974, the author describes the historical influences and constraints and their role in shaping Loyola's organizational character and place within Quebec's educational system between 1869 and 1969. He also identifies the most significant external pressures which threatened Loyola's continuation as an English Catholic institution of higher learning between 1969 and 1974. The author describes the failed attempts to persuade both the officials of the Quebec Catholic Church and the Quebec Government that Loyola should be granted university status, the impact of the Royal Commission of Inquiry on Education in the Province of Quebec (1961-1966), known as the Parent Commission, which recommended the amalgamation of Loyola College and Sir George Williams University, and the negotiations with Sir George Williams to form Concordia University in 1974.
