From the Boarding House to the Board Room: 250 Years of Women at Rutgers
Rutgers was founded in 1766 to educate young men, and so it remained for the first 152 years. Yet from the beginning women played vital but unrecognized roles. This film, directed by award-winning filmmaker June Cross and produced by the Institute for Women's Leadership consortium, highlights the multiple layers of Rutgers' ongoing transformation - from the campaign to create a separate, co-ordinate women's college to the first female students to enter Rutgers College. While Rutgers' story is distinctive, it is also universal. The film considers the radical transformation of higher education and how this revolution continues to meet the needs of 21st century students.
