Julia Reinstein '28 Symposium

The Women's and Gender Studies Program organizes the Julia Reinstein Symposium each year. The event is made possible by a bequest from college alumna Julia Reinstein '28, a feminist, early lesbian activist, and strong supporter of women's issues. A keynote speaker is invited in cooperation with Students Against Sexism and Stereotypes (SASS).

Dr. Anita B. Ogden Symposium

Dr. Anita B. Ogden, a nationally known nursing leader, was Director of Elmira College Nurse Education Program from 1989 until her death in 2000. Dr. Ogden considered complementary therapies to professional nursing care and an important adjunct to traditional medicine. Primary funding for support of the symposium comes from an endowment established in Dr. Ogden’s memory that is supported by colleagues, alumnae and friends.
