Return to Spotlight Home

On October 28, 2006, hundreds of alumnae and supporters gathered on campus to celebrate the kick-off of The Campaign for Mount Holyoke. The daylong program highlighted the College’s opportunities for international study and research, including the dedication of The Dorothy R. and Norman E. McCulloch Center for Global Initiatives.

That evening, guests gathered for the official Campaign announcement celebration. Flanked by the cochairs Leslie Anne Miller ’73 and Barbara McClearn Baumann ’77, President Creighton broke the inspiring news that more than $82 million had been raised to jumpstart the Campaign.

“The Campaign is about ensuring that this improbable longest-standing, paradigm-setting women’s college continues to defy the odds,” President Creighton said. “No cause is more worthy of our time and energy and dollars.”

After resounding applause, glasses were raised, Mount Holyoke was toasted, and the Alma Mater echoed through Chapin. The Campaign for Mount Holyoke had begun.
