More About Mississippi University for Women
Mississippi University for Women (MUW or “The W”) is a public coeducational university located in Columbus, Mississippi. The Mississippi State College for Women was once known as the Industrial Institute and College for the Education of White Girls. Since 1982, men have been accepted to MUW, and they now account for around 20% of the student body.
The W was ranked 15th among public Southern regional colleges and 18th among top public schools by U.S. News & World Report in 2022. In terms of social mobility, the university is in the top ten.
Mississippi University for Women was the first public women’s college in the United States when it opened in 1884. On March 12, 1884, an act of the Mississippi Legislature established the Mississippi Industrial Institute and College for the Education of White Girls (II&C) for the dual aims of providing a liberal arts education for white women and preparing them for employment.
The II&C was housed on the grounds of the Columbus Female Institute, a private college that had been established in 1847. The first session of the II&C began on October 22, 1885, with roughly 250 students enrolled. The board of trustees of the State Institutions of Higher Learning chose Dr. Richard Watson Jones as the university’s first president. President Jones also taught physics and chemistry at the Institute during his first year, and he was joined by 17 other faculty members.
Dale Thorn described MUW’s successful attempt to avoid merging with another institution and to remain a separate organisation in a 1997 essay in Innovative Higher Education.
President Dr. Claudia Limbert indicated in 2009 that the university’s name could be changed to “Reneau University.” The change was not approved by the Mississippi legislature.
Nora Roberts Miller was named the first alumna president of Mississippi University on February 1, 2019. The State Institutions of Higher Learning board of trustees named her the 15th president on September 15, 2018.
After defeating the University of Maine – Fort Kent in March 2019, the women’s basketball team won the USCAA National Championship.
