Driven by the idea of a permanent school for women, Lyon harnessed the accomplishments of other educators and applied sharp political acumen to achieve her task: "It is desirable," she wrote, "that the plans relating to the subject should not seem to originate with us [women], but with benevolent gentlemen.
The College is actively engaged in educating students, faculty, and staff to understand and appreciate personal and cultural differences and to be sensitive to the traditions and needs of others.
