Texas Woman’s University

Main image

Short History

An act of the 27th Texas Legislature in 1901 founded the Girls Industrial College as a public institution that would become Texas Woman's University in 1957. The school had then and has now a dual mission: to provide a liberal education and to prepare young women "for the practical industries of the age" with a specialized education. TWU continues today as a public university that offers a comprehensive catalog of academic studies, including baccalaureate, master's and doctoral degrees. The university has grown from a small college to a major university. TWU is the largest university primarily for women in the United States, with the main campus in Denton and health science centers in Dallas and Houston.

Simmons College

Main image

Short History

Simmons College was founded in 1899 by Boston businessman John Simmons, who had a revolutionary idea — that women should be able to earn independent livelihoods and lead meaningful lives. It was this same spirit of inclusion and empowerment that produced the first African-American Simmons graduate in 1914, and made Simmons one of the only private colleges that did not impose admission quotas on Jewish students during the first half of the 1900s.

Location

Boston, Massachusetts

Points of pride

At Simmons, we place students first. Our hands-on curriculum integrates intellectual leadership, career preparation, and community orientation, because all three approaches are necessary for success. We are proud of our welcoming, collaborative community that encourages dialogue, action, and respect—and that makes the Simmons experience as thoughtful as it is thought provoking.
