Sister Muriel Ford

The Sister Muriel Ford Lectureship is an endowment created by the Alumni of Briar Cliff to honor the person who served for 20 years as director of alumni relations. Sister Muriel, who died in 1979, was chairperson of the sociology department from 1937-72. Throughout her years at Briar Cliff, Sister Muriel was recognized as a champion of social justice and a teacher who stirred in her students a desire to serve their community. It is in light of these characteristic strengths of Sister Muriel that the Departments of Sociology and Social Work choose speakers concerned about contemporary social issues and personally dedicated to their resolution.
