As the second oldest co-educational institution in the United States, Alfred University has a long and proud history of equality for women. The equality is especially strong as it relates to the classroom but also extends into athletic opportunities. Before Title IX greatly expanded women’s athletics, Alfred University had long supported women’s teams and avenues for physical fitness.

A history of Women’s Athletics at Alfred University and an online timeline has been assembled in preparation for a recognition of women athletes during the Homecoming 2015 celebration.

To view the varsity opportunities for current women at Alfred University, please visit the Athletics webpage.

To enhance the collection, the University Archives welcomes the donation of stories, photos, and/or memorabilia related to this topic (and others).
