(p.111) Chapter 5 The Chief End of Man and of Woman
A New Moral Vision

Andrea L. Turpin

Cornell University Press

This chapter provides an overview of the Princeton Seminary, which had been in many ways the quintessential nineteenth-century denominational college, and before that a classic colonial college. In 1900, when it joined the elite cadre of institutions to found the Association of American Universities, it was one of the only such colleges to be recognized for transitioning to university status. As an institution widely acknowledged first as a prominent denominational college and later as a prominent university, Princeton provides a clear window into how the various changes roiling higher education at the turn of the century combined to produce a new, more gendered approach to student moral formation at those elite men's institutions that rejected coeducation.
