Western College Legacy
Western College for Women, a private liberal arts institution began as the Western Female Seminary in Oxford, Ohio in 1853. The Seminary was modeled after Mount Holyoke Female Seminary in Massachusetts. Western gained college status in 1893 and educated generations of young women until 1974 when it was forced to close due to financial difficulties. The property became part of Miami University.

Western College Legacy Seminars
The desired outcome for the Western College Legacy Seminars is to provide a forum for Miami University faculty, students, and the community at large to learn and debate topics critical to the health, well-being and development of the global community.
The Western College Alumnae Association, Inc. is excited to provide this series so that these topics can be discussed utilizing national and international experts in an environment that promotes discourse not denial, understanding not separation, and respect not animosity.
Seminars bring speakers on the Western Center's current biennial theme.
