Faculty in the College of Arts and Sciences at Mississippi University for Women (MUW) are planning to commemorate the 50th anniversary of racial desegregation in Fall 2016. MUW began in 1884 as the "Mississippi Industrial Institute and College for the Education of White Girls of the State of Mississippi in the Arts and Sciences." It was the first of many publicly-funded white women's colleges to open in the South during the Reconstruction era.
