On the Center’s multi-phasic identities and development over time

Irwin Venick, Joe Little, and Bob Hartmann reflect on the birth and growth of the Center for Health Services (CHS) over time, tracing its stages of development from its initial Medical School partnership to its later social-science orientation and eventually, with Barbara Clinton as director in the late 1970s, to its relationship with the Nursing School. Irwin frames the evolution of the Center as reflective of what happens to any institution over time: they assume and have different identities as times change. See the full length panel discussion to learn more about the complex origins of the institutionalized Center and its relationship to the student-led Coalition.
