First 50: Celebrating Women at Saint Mary’s

In recognition of the 50th anniversary of women’s admission to Saint Mary’s, the College is hosting a series of events in the spring semester, with special emphasis in March during Women’s History Month. In addition, hallmark SMC events—including the Distinguished Alumni Awards, Professor of the Year, Convocation, and Commencement—showcase notable alumnae and colleagues who are innovators and leaders in their communities.

Please enjoy this pictorial featuring a small selection of women from our 50 years of history who represent the College’s mission of giving back to the community. They work to create social justice, show faith in the presence of God, and promote respect for all persons. We are grateful for the roles these women and so many others have played at Saint Mary’s and beyond.
