She served as president of the American Home Economics Association (AHEA) and developed links with Russia and Latin America. She spearheaded a one-million dollar campaign that culminated in 1960 with the creation of a new, state-of-the-art building that served as the School’s home until 2008, when construction of McClelland Park was completed.

The University of Arizona sits on the original homelands of indigenous peoples who have stewarded this land since time immemorial. Aligning with the university’s core value of a diverse and inclusive community, it is an institutional responsibility to recognize and acknowledge the people, culture and history that make up the Wildcat community. At the institutional level, it is important to be proactive in broadening awareness throughout campus to ensure our students feel represented and valued.
