Roosevelt University Founding Faculty Lecture Series Presents:

Rose Hum Lee, PhD: Pioneer American Woman and Scholar at Roosevelt University, 1945-1962

Rose Hum Lee was a sociologist, professor, and scholar - and the first Chinese American woman to head an academic department of a major American university when she was appointed Chair of the Sociology Department at Roosevelt University in 1956.

"I was a woman; I was in a man's field, and I was Chinese. That meant three strikes against me...The fact that I was able to overcome these barriers is a tremendous encouragement to others, particularly women who belong to minority groups." - Rose Hum Lee

Lecture presented by Evelyn Hu-DeHart, Phd.
Professor of History and Director of the Center for the Study of Race and Ethnicity in America, Brown University.
