Dr. Helene Lawson came to Pitt-Bradford in 1991 because she appreciated the "rural beauty-there are no hills and few trees in Chicago." She also liked the fact that the college is affiliated with the larger University of Pittsburgh, which gives her and her students access to the university's many resources.
