Fulfilling the Promise

Fifty years ago four pioneering African-American women quietly integrated the Winthrop campus. Over a week’s time this fall, Winthrop commemorates this significant milestone in the university’s history.

Our theme, “Fulfilling the Promise,” allows the community to come together, remember, and reflect on the contributions of these brave women and many other esteemed African Americans who helped pave the way for the access and diversity that characterizes today’s Winthrop experience. Please join us!
