School Highlights 

Small classes mean individual attention. When you question a concept, when you're ready to stretch yourself, when you're tackling something new, it's important to have faculty ready (and available) to help. It's the kind of environment where you can really explore what inspires you and grow as a student and (future) professional. You’ll come to understand where you can best make a difference while gaining real-world professional experience.

Outstanding Faculty
At Stephens, our faculty members make teaching their first priority and serve as advisers and mentors. Professors are committed to helping students—starting their first year—discover their talents, strengthen their abilities and become the creative, confident leaders known. Our professors attend and present at national and international conferences, are deeply involved in their industries and professions, publish and are respected experts within their fields.

Women’s College Advantage
Proud to be the second oldest women’s college in the country, we take our emphasis on women seriously. That commitment extends to not only our focus on women’s unique health issues but also on providing fulfilling career and leadership opportunities. For many, an internship/capstone experience will provide even greater insights into career and professional opportunities. Small class sizes and dedicated mentors also lead to more research opportunities.
