Doris Crozier came to Gambier in 1969 and served as the first and only Dean of the Coordinate College for Women. Crozier had most recently been at Chatham College as the Assistant to the President and Assistant Professor of Anthropology. A career educator, Crozier brought with her "a wide background of teaching and educational adminiatrative experience, both in the United States and abroad."
"One of Dean Crozier's overriding concerns was that the Coordinate College, with its small numbers, would be overwhelmed and ignored by the men's college. She was constantly alert to any possibility that 'her girls' were being regarded as second-class citizens in the college community. She resigned in the spring of 1972, just as Kenyon College became a coeducational institution, but Dean Crozier will always be identified as the guiding force in the short life of the Coordinate College."
