Fifty years ago, on May 29, 1970, Lehigh’s Board of Trustees voted to accept female undergraduate students to the university for the first time, a decision that would forever transform the university. The first group of 169 female undergraduate students arrived some 18 months after the vote, in fall 1971. Learn more about the celebration of women at Lehigh.
