                                    HISTORY
•   Established in 1887 in the same mold as
    small New England institutions.
•   In the 1920’s the college grew and the
    president wanted a group of institutions
    divided into small colleges around a
    library and other utilities which they
    would use in common.
•   This would allow Pomona to retain its
    small, liberal arts-focused teaching while
    gaining the resources of a larger
    university, shared among other similar
    small colleges.
•   By 1997, the consortium reached its
    present membership of 5 undergraduate
    and 2 graduate institutions.
