The Women's Symposium was created in 1966 as a part of the University's Fiftieth Anniversary celebration by the late Emmie V. Baine, Dean of Women at SMU from 1962 to 1988. The Symposium is the longest continuously running program of its nature in the country and one of SMU's oldest and most distinguished traditions.
The annual forum brings together women and men of differing ages and multicultural backgrounds to examine and discuss topics of national interest. The Symposium is a product of a year's work by joint committees of students, faculty, and community leaders. The program features nationally recognized speakers as well as topical seminars and workshops conducted by students, community leaders, and SMU faculty and staff.
The lifeline of the SMU Women's Symposium is the individual contributor. Annual gifts from individuals, no matter what size, help fund a significant portion of the operations of the Symposium. Gifts may be made by cash, check, or online with a credit card. Give today and change the world and the women who can make the difference.
Gifts may be made to honor or memorialize someone living or deceased. Celebrate a birth, graduation, anniversary or other special event with a gift to the SMU Women's Symposium.
Personal contacts made on behalf of the SMU Women's Symposium -- friend to friend; colleague to colleague; teacher to student; mentor to protégée -- are the most powerful and effective contributions one can make. Whether it is distributing brochures at meetings, making phone calls, mailing special invitations to individuals or mentoring planning committee students, Symposium Ambassadors provide an invaluable service to the program. By actively promoting the SMU Women's Symposium, Ambassadors ensure this landmark program continues to provide quality programming to an ever-increasing multicultural, multigenerational audience of women and men.
