Bryn Mawr College will soon be home to the The Albert M. Greenfield Digital Center for the History of Women and Higher Education, announced Bryn Mawr President Jane McAuliffe at the “Heritage and Hope” Conference last Friday.

The Albert M. Greenfield Digital Center for the History of Women and Higher Education, which is being made possible by a generous grant from The Albert M. Greenfield Foundation, will serve as an online resource to support original research, teaching, and the exchange of ideas about the history of women in higher education, both in the United States and worldwide. It will advance Bryn Mawr’s role as a global leader in the field of women’s education and inform the ongoing global debates about women’s education and roles in society.

“This is the kind of funding that will really make a difference,” said McAuliffe in announcing the center and grant. “I am deeply grateful to the Greenfield Foundation for this generous gift that will allow us to continue the conversations started at this conference and so much more.”
