The Lore-El Center is a vibrant living and learning environment that promotes the empowerment of Stevens women through programs, events, mentorship and a shared residential experience.

The Lore-El Center is located in a beautiful, Victorian-style home located in close proximity to the Stevens campus that serves as a central point of community and education for Stevens women.  The mission of Lore-El at Stevens is to increase awareness to issues facing not only women but all genders; empower Stevens women to further their co-curricular development; and create a supportive and inclusive campus environment.

A small group of women committed to women’s programming apply and are selected to reside in the house each year. Student Affairs staff serve as mentors and educators for Lore-El and assist with developing and implementing programs and events for the Stevens community.  

Programs and Events

Lore-El serves as a hub for community events, meetings and professional development opportunities for Stevens women. Some examples of Lore-El sponsored programs include the annual Women's Leadership Conference, the Week of Women, the Lore-El Lunch & Learn series, and a variety of service opportunities.  Visit our Programs website for more information.

Engagement with Lore-El

With renewed donor interest, the Lore-El Center will benefit from a major renovation. To keep this valuable center flourishing while contributing to Stevens’ vibrant campus, capital improvements are needed. Such improvements will allow Lore-El to become a true hub for all women’s programs at Stevens.

Rendering of the renovated first floor of Lore-El Center

Upgrades will be made to the first floor meeting spaces for hosting educational and social programs and workshops. Construction plans also include adding more kitchen space and creating an adjacent ADA compliant bathroom; designing a patio aligned with the first floor for residents to gather outdoors, as well as installing an exterior wheelchair lift for entry into the house; and beautifying the exterior with landscaping and improvements to the main entrance.

Engagement with Lore-El will further interpersonal, social, and professional development through annual programs and initiatives. It will also connect students, faculty, staff, alums, and friends of Stevens who share a common passion for women’s empowerment and success. Additionally, it will provide opportunities for the Stevens community to engage in dialogue on gender-related issues in safe and comfortable spaces; support students, faculty, and staff in navigating the university environment and professional opportunities; and promote successful careers for undergraduate women.
