About the Lecture Series
The Jeannene Booher Fashion Lecture Series launched in November 2016 with a $1 million gift from Jeannene Booher, a 1956 alumna of the Stephens College fashion program. Through the lecture series, Stephens students also benefit from guest lecturers attending classes, meeting with students in small groups, and providing networking and critique opportunities.
