Article "Dunne decides to move on after one year at University"

Description

The Collegian published this article on April 12, 1990. The article discusses the departure of Deborah Dunne, a professor of the Philosophy Department. In the article, done expressed her "alienation" at the University, noting its lack of diversity and community, "I felt alienated here...it's a place that's too conservative for me and not diverse enough." Dunne had previously attended the University of Toronto and the University of Alfred, both of which she had described as being more diverse in terms of gender, race, and ethnicity. During her time at the University of Richmond, Dunne had helped create a "Race and Gender Forum" that met weekly. Dunne was hired on a tenured track position, but left after a year of teaching.
