History

Point Park University has expanded and grown into a university, but has experienced some challenges and growing pains in its history, facing impending bankruptcy and closure on two separate occasions.


Beginnings

The university began as a one-room business training college in 1933 with an initial enrollment of 50 students, under the direction of Dorothy Finkelhor, a New York native, and L. Herbert Finkelhor. At the time, it was notable for a woman to found such an institution. Finkelhor provided her students with business and secretarial skills. At the same time, she served in multiple roles as teacher, the dean of women, social chairman, janitor, telephone operator, admissions and finance director, and registrar. Year 1933 (MCMXXXIII) was a common year starting on Sunday (link will display full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ... This article is about the state. ... For other uses, see Secretary (disambiguation). ...


Becoming a college

By 1960, the business school had grown to nearly 880 students and moved to the university’s current academic center, Academic Hall, on Wood Street in central Downtown Pittsburgh. The Finkelhors’ small secretarial school became Point Park Junior College, named for the city’s historic Point State Park. The junior college added two-year programs in engineering technology, education, and journalism. It also acquired performing arts space at The Pittsburgh Playhouse in the Oakland neighborhood. Five years later, the college was granted four-year status, officially becoming Point Park College. Year 1960 (MCMLX) was a leap year starting on Friday (link will display full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ... Downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, sometimes called the Golden Triangle, is located at the precise confluence of the Allegheny River and the Monongahela River. ... Point Park University (formerly Point Park College) is a liberal arts university located in downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. ... Point State Park and the fountain can be seen in the lower left corner of this photo of Pittsburgh. ... Engineering technology (ET) is a cross between engineering (which is more research-based), and technology (which is applications-based). ... Journalism is a discipline of gathering, writing and reporting news, and broadly it includes the process of editing and presenting the news articles. ...

Point Park University is a university located in downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. ...

Flags lining the campus

Thirty-four years after forming the college, Dorothy Finkelhor retired in 1967. The school’s reins remained within the family as son-in-law Arthur M. Blum assumed the presidency. Blum purchased the Sherwyn Hotel, a 20-story building across from Academic Hall, which became David L. Lawrence Hall. The hall currently contains most of the school’s social and entertaining facilities as well as classrooms, offices, and dormitories.

David Leo Lawrence (June 18, 1889–November 21, 1966), served as the Democratic Governor of Pennsylvania from 1959 to 1963. ...

1970 financial crisis

Blum’s Lawrence Hall investment continues to benefit the school. Blum also established a campus in Lugano, Switzerland and bought a conference center in Sewickley park, and a conference center in Mercer County, PA. Lugano is a city in south-east Switzerland, in the Italian speaking canton of Ticino, which borders Italy. ... Sewickley during Autumn Sewickley is a borough in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, 12 miles west northwest of Pittsburgh along the Ohio River. ...


John V. Hopkins succeeded Blum, inheriting a school in arrears and with dwindling admission. By May 1973, desperate faculty members forewent their paychecks as part of a collaborative effort to save the college. Eventually, the sacrifice became success. Hopkins closed the Swiss campus and the conference center and completely reorganized Point Park’s finances. For the song by James Blunt, see 1973 (song). ...


Stability

With the budget climbing out of the red, the school began a slow healing process into the 1980s. Enrollment grew beyond 1,000 students as dance and theatre programs were introduced. These programs laid the groundwork for Point Park’s current Conservatory of Performing Arts. At the same time, the school introduced its first postgraduate degree, a master’s degree in journalism and mass communication. The 1980s refers to the years from 1980 to 1989. ...

J. Matthew Simon served as the college’s next president from 1985 to 1994, providing nearly a decade of relative calm in the institution’s turbulent history. Simon oversaw the acquisition of a new library, program growth, and the school’s largest endowment. Simon retired in 2007 retired from Point Park as a professor in the department of Natural Sciences and Engineering Technology. This article is about the year. ... Year 1994 (MCMXCIV) The year 1994 was designated as the International Year of the Family and the International Year of the Sport and the Olympic Ideal by the United Nations. ...


1994 Crisis

Another crisis came with the election of James Hunter as president. Hunter, Point Park’s most controversial leader, served for a little over a year but managed to garner outcry for an admissions scandal and a breakdown of communication within the school.


At the same time, growth remained slow in the city, and Pittsburgh’s economy still had not recovered from the collapse of the steel industry. The college’s finances suffered, and Point Park again neared bankruptcy. Negotiations began with Duquesne University to sell what remained of Point Park College to the larger school. Duquesne University of the Holy Spirit is a private Catholic university in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA. Founded by members of the Congregation of the Holy Spirit, Duquesne (IPA: ) first opened its doors as the Pittsburgh Catholic College of the Holy Ghost in October 1878 with an enrollment of 40 students and...


Hunter resigned amidst the melee, and Katherine Henderson won the approval of the board of trustees soon after. It has been suggested that this article or section be merged into Board of directors. ...


Growth and change

Henderson implemented a strategic plan to revive the college. Plans to sell the school were abandoned as Henderson began another procedural overhaul.


Henderson’s tenure became the most successful for Point Park. During the late ‘90s, budget woes disintegrated as enrollment rose to over 3,000 students and the endowment grew by over 200 percent. Point Park finished major renovations of its existing buildings soon after the turn of the century. For the band, see 1990s (band). ...


By 2004, the school hit a new high water mark and successfully applied for university status. It was officially renamed Point Park University that year and the administration began an aggressive $1 million branding campaign to attract more enrollment. Year 2004 (MMIV) was a leap year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


Henderson retired in 2006 while on a self-imposed sabbatical. Year 2006 (MMVI) was a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


Current efforts

The board of trustees officially named Paul Hennigan as Henderson's permanent successor at the beginning of the 2006 fall term. Hennigan has continued the process of creating a new strategic plan. As part of the plan, the university has purchased several Downtown properties for development. The school is also poised to become a key player in the city's efforts for Downtown revitalization, owning properties along the coveted Fifth and Forbes streets corridor.[4] It has been suggested that this article or section be merged into Board of directors. ... Downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, sometimes called the Golden Triangle, is located at the precise confluence of the Allegheny River and the Monongahela River. ...


Most recently, the school partnered with a private contractor to renovate two historic buildings into suite-style residence halls. One of these residence halls became home to a Starbucks in August 2007. The coffee shop is the first full-service retail entity incorporated into Point Park's campus. For other uses of Starbuck, see Starbuck. ... Year 2007 (MMVII) was a common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar in the 21st century. ...


In addition, construction on a state-of-the-art dance facility is schedule to be complete by fall 2007. A Web cam showing the building's progress is available on Point Park's Web site. Year 2007 (MMVII) was a common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar in the 21st century. ...
