College History

History

On September 14, 1938, a group of New London, Connecticut citizens founded New London Junior College as a private, nonprofit, coeducational, two-year college in their community. The College opened its doors to the first freshman class on Sept. 18, 1939. During the fall term of 1942-43, nearly all of the college�s male students entered the armed services, and the United States Army and Coast Guard made urgent demands for the use of the college�s facilities. A special summer session for veterans began in June, 1946, and regular classes resumed in September of that year. In 1950 trustees officially adopted the name Mitchell College to honor the descendants of the Alfred Mitchell family, principal benefactors of the College since its founding. In 1956 Mitchell College was awarded membership in the New England Association of Schools and Colleges. Dr. Mary Ellen Jukoski was appointed to the presidency on March 1, 1995 after serving for nine months as Acting President. She had been Dean of the College since 1990. Under President Jukoski�s leadership, the College offered its first baccalaureate program in the area of Human Development in 1998. The first bachelor�s degrees were conferred to 12 students during the May 2000 commencement exercises. Mitchell College now offers 26 four-year degree programs of study. The College launched Thames Academy, a one-year pre-college/ post-grad certificate program. In the 2013-14 academic year, Mitchell College is celebrating its 75th Anniversary with a year-long program of campus events, lectures, and observances, including the development of a 75th anniversary timeline highlighting institutional milestones.
