Celebrating 50 Years of Women at Stevens
Meet the Women of the Class of 1975
September 1971 marked the beginning of a new era for Stevens as women were officially admitted into the school’s undergraduate program. Out of a class of 387, 19 women composed the inaugural group— a “long overdue and necessary experiment for the Institute,” according to an article in the Stevens Indicator the previous year. They were vanguard, the first women to overcome the societal barriers that until then limited their opportunities for educational advancement. We invite you to learn more about the extraordinary women who rose to the challenges of their time, ultimately paving the way for the generations of Stevens women to follow.
