Witherspoon at the desire of college president Bonnie Cone and existed as part of the College of Arts and Sciences upon Charlotte College’s becoming the fourth campus of the University of North Carolina in 1965. In 1972, the department was divided into the separate departments of Philosophy and Religious Studies.
