This Year's Theme For The Women's Symposium is Stomping Grounds!
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.
