Description

Interview with Ronald Poitras by Barbara Roos, documenting the history of Grand Valley State's William James College. William James College was the third baccalaureate degree granting college for Grand Valley. It was originally designed to be an interdisciplinary, non-departmentalized college consisting of concentration programs, rather than majors. The college opened in 1971 and was discontinued in 1983 during a reorganization of Grand Valley State. Ronald Poitras was a Community and Environmental Planning faculty member in William James College and longtime professor at Grand Valley. In this interview, Ron discusses the philosophy of William James College and what attracted him to teach there, in addition to his experience working on the Prospect House project in Grand Rapids, Michigan. This interview is part 1 of 1 for Ronald Poitras.
