Girton College is one of the 31 constituent colleges of the University of Cambridge. It was England’s first residential college for women, established in 1869 by Emily Davies, Barbara Bodichon and Lady Stanley of Alderley. The full college status was only received in 1948 and marked the official admittance of women to the university. In 1976, it was Cambridge’s first women’s college to become coeducational. In 2010, the college’s net assets were valued at £104.5 million, including £49 million of endowment, and in 2009-10 it admitted 674 full-time undergraduates and postgraduates. The college’s formal governance is assured by a Mistress, currently Susan J. Smith.
