"Cultivating intellectual reach and social diversity among our faculty is an important institutional value. In commemorating 150 years of women at Northwestern, we recognize those who attained status of full professor and celebrate our current leadership who work to improve patient care, scientific research, and medical education. They are the vanguard of more to come as we encourage all women to the highest levels of achievement in our academic community."
