ABOUT THE EXHIBIT

"Perspectives and Visions: 100 Years of Lowell's
College of Education" celebrates one of the
community's distinguished centers of learning. 
Through documents, photographs, artifacts, and
text, viewers will learn about the founding and
evolution of the State Normal School of Lowell,
whose educational mission is carried on by today's
UMass Lowell College of Education.  The corridor
panels act as a time-line, highlighting key moments in the past 100 years.  Display cases feature subjects
and periods of special interest.  The main exhibit
area inside the Immigrants Exhibit offers a 
retrospective look at the academic life and
student life of the college.

     This exhibit is one of many activities and events in 1994 and 1995 organized to celebrate the Centennial of the University of Massachusetts Lowell.  For a schedule of events, contact Christine A. McKenna, Coordinator of Public Information at the University.
