A Year-Long Commemoration and Celebration
Uncovering the history, recognizing the change-makers, moving forward together
This fall marks 150 years since women could enroll as Northwestern undergraduate students. As we collectively commemorate this milestone — and the women, womxn and gender-diverse individuals who have shaped Northwestern — we have many opportunities to reflect, be inspired, and learn from each other. The 150th anniversary of women at Northwestern is for everyone.
How will you get involved?
Throughout the academic year, events and programming will be held across the entire university and around the world. There are many ways to be a part of the 150 Years of Women story and help shape the future of our community.
