Holy Cross Celebrates 40th Anniversary of Coeducation

The College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts, is holding a series of events throughout the current academic year to commemorate the 40th anniversary of coeducation at the highly ranked liberal arts institution. The celebration, dubbed Opening Doors, will include art exhibits, symposia, lectures, conferences, theatrical productions, and other events.

Jacqueline Peterson, vice president of student affairs and dean of students, who chairs the coordinating committee organizing anniversary events, stated, “In addition to recognizing an important chapter in our history, our aim during the year ahead is to recognize women who are shaping Holy Cross today and tomorrow. That’s why the ‘Opening Doors’ theme is so important. We know there are still more doors to open, even as we celebrate the achievements of women who have crossed new thresholds while engaging in the life of the college and the wider world.”
