About Our College
Cambridge College had its beginnings as an innovative graduate program created by Eileen Moran Brown and Joan Goldsmith in the newly created Institute of Open Education (IOE) in 1971 formed by John Bremer at Newton College of the Sacred Heart. Students in education programs were given individual attention: for example, through critiques of videotaped student performance on the job. Within two years, Brown and Goldsmith were directing the IOE, and later affiliated the IOE with Antioch College, where Brown was named Dean. In 1979, Brown began the 18-month process of elevating the graduate program to an independent, fully accredited institution that was named Cambridge College.
