Monday, June 19, 2017

Mount Carroll's first teachers Frances Shimer, who went on to take co-ownership of the seminary and was rarely away from the campus since it opened in 1853, could not be there for the 1895 Commencement. For the sake of her health, "our General", as faculty and friends called her, had been spending more time in Florida.Shortly before she retired one year later, Shimer made the decision to merge the all-girls seminary with the University of Chicago. She wanted what she called "a cause for which together we are laboring" to continue on in her beloved institution as the Frances Shimer Academy of the University of Chicago.It was a matter of long-term sustainability and, for the 116 years which followed its founder's death in 1901, Shimer Collegenot only survived but became economically, socially and culturally symbiotic with the turbulent history of the world around it.On May 20, 2017 Windy City Times received an announcement from Shimer alumnus and Board of Trustees member Robert Keohane which concluded the college's 164-year legacy with a cursory statement."Shimer as an independent college will cease to exist."

"This decision represents the culmination of a 20-month effort to find a way for the Shimer program to continue in a sustainable fashion."Keohane noted that 34 students would transfer to the Great Books School on North Central College's campus in Naperville, Illinois.While crediting Shimer's 14th President Dr. Susan E.
