Founding Mothers, Major Milestones and Special Events
Education…research…community service. The land-grant mission is alive and well at UDC. It is the foundation of our past and the blueprint for our future. Starting with our “founding mother,” Myrtilla Miner, whose Miner Normal School started it all, we have consistently broken new ground in educating students for leadership in academia, the professions and the world.
In honor of our 160th anniversary, we have planned a year-long celebration with events designed to present our history of scholarship and achievement to our city and beyond. We invite you to watch this space for the latest and greatest about the coming gala, lectures, seminars and more.
If you have a story, a memory or photo from the last 160 years—or know someone who does—please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. For 160th Anniversary sponsorship and donor opportunities, please contact Mr. Lee Brian Reba, Executive Director of Corporate Relations & Special Events, at 202.274.5561 or email@example.com.
