As the first of the Seven Sisters—the female equivalent of the once predominantly male Ivy League—Mount Holyoke established higher education for women as a serious endeavor. Their long, distinguished history of educating leaders arises from a powerful combination of academic excellence in a global learning environment, a tight-knit, diverse, and international community, a worldwide network of influential alumnae, and the conviction that women can and should make a difference in the world. Mount Holyoke has a long history of supporting the entry of women into many fields of science, i.e. for the better part of a century, the college sent more women off to PhDs in the physical sciences than perhaps any other academic institution. Integrating computing throughout the liberal arts curriculum has been at the heart of the Computer Science Department's work since 1971.

New Mexico State University was founded in 1888 as Las Cruces College. During its first full academic year, the college became known as the New Mexico College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts, the first degree granting institution in the Territory. Under the provisions of the Morrill Act of 1862, the special mission of land-grant institutions has been to provide a liberal and practical education for students and to sustain programs of research, extension education, and public service. In 1960, New Mexico College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts became New Mexico State University. Since that time, while sustaining excellence in those programs traditionally associated with land-grant institutions, New Mexico State has become a comprehensive doctoral level university offering a wide variety of programs. New Mexico State University is the state's land-grant university, serving the educational needs of New Mexico's diverse population through comprehensive programs of education, research, extension education, and public service.
