Our story began in an era when the education of women was an unconventional notion. But an unshakeable belief in the capacity of women to learn and to lead sparked the creation of Augusta Female Seminary in 1842 . It’s no accident that today Mary Baldwin University is uniquely positioned to take advantage of its historic residential women’s college while embracing programs that provide the extensive opportunities of a small, co-ed university.
Setting the standard for innovation with a purpose, today Mary Baldwin is an exceptionally diverse institution with a variety of undergraduate and graduate programs for both women and men in locations throughout Virginia.
