Mary Baldwin University will create a new, coeducational unit next year that, for the first time, breaks from its single-sex residential tradition, and offer a three-year, fast-track degree program.
Mary Baldwin has been co-ed since 1977. But men routinely living on campus is something new.
The Mary Baldwin College for Women will be retained within the coed university and continue to be single sex. The new program is about surviving and adapting.
There are only about 40 women-only colleges and universities left in the country.
