Celebrating CNR Women, Past & Present

Throughout the history of the College of Natural Resources, women have contributed to its diverse and comprehensive research and discoveries, including many “firsts,” both within their respective fields and at Berkeley. In 1874, the university’s first female graduate, Rosa L. Scrivner, earned a degree in agriculture from the College of Agriculture, CNR’s predecessor. Since that time, CNR has continued to champion and support the work of women scientists and thinkers.
