Who We Are
Adele's Circle of Women is founded on the legacy and visionary contributions of Adele H. Stamp, the first Dean of Women at the University of Maryland. Created in 2013, we are a dedicated group of women graduates who combine their energy and expertise to achieve maximum success in their personal and professional lives. We honor Adele by emulating her excellence, high standards, and outstanding traditions. Learn more about us
