Celebrate 125 Years of Bryn Mawr College

In 2010-11, Bryn Mawr College celebrates its 125th anniversary and its ”Bold Vision.  For Women.  For the World.” These words capture both the radical ideas of our founding – as an institution that would offer women the kind of education then available only to men at the finest universities—and our sense of mission now and for the future—as a leading liberal arts institution dedicated to the education and advancement of women on campus and around the world. 

We will mark this anniversary with special events throughout the year, including

  • An international conference on women’s education in a global context in September 2010
  • Stellar visiting writers and performers
  • Awarding of the Katharine Houghton Hepburn Medal for leadership in women’s health in February 2011
  • Creation of a mural celebrating the College’s past, present and future in conjunction with the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program.

I invite you to join in the celebration!
