A Dean of Women was installed in 1921. From that point on women began to play a more significant role in the University’s affairs. In 1936, Eva Clare became the first Director of Music. Gradually women were hired as professors and later began to take more prominent roles at the administrative level. These included Isabel Auld who served as Chancellor of the University from 1977 to 1986, Pamela Boldus, Chair of the Board of Governors from 1995 to 1997 and Emoke Szathmary, President of the university from 1996 to today.
