She was a graduate of Vassar, earned a Master's degree, was a faculty member of the English Department at UK before becoming Dean of Women from 1921-23.
The College of Social Professions was established in 1969 and was renamed the College of Social Work in 1980. The College continues to educate social work professionslas to provide superior care through a curriculum offering course work that is robust and challenging and that addresses the complexities of the human condition.
