In 1971, Stevens became fully coeducational, inviting female students into its undergraduate classrooms for the first time. Forty years later, Stevens is far richer thanks to the influence of women in university academics, research, athletics and campus life. From the first 19 women in that Class of 1975 to the more than 7,000 women who have since shaped life on Castle Point, the women of Stevens have contributed significantly to the growth and accomplishment of the University as well as to national and global industry, where they have achieved tremendous success in engineering, science, innovation and entrepreneurship.

With this celebration of 40 Years of Women at Stevens, we recognize the distinguished contributions of Stevens’ extraordinary women and celebrate and extend the legacy of yesterday's proud graduates, today's talented students and tomorrow's illustrious leaders. We invite you to read their stories and share your memories. Contribute to the conversation by commenting on our Facebook posts — which are identified as being about 40 Years of Women — or emailing us at media@stevens.edu with story ideas.
