Seven Years Later: Women's Studies Programs in 1976. A Report of the National Advisory Council on Women's Educational Programs.
Fifteen women's studies programs across the U.S. were examined in this review commissioned by the National Advisory Council on Women's Educational Programs. All of the programs were in phase two of women's studies, defined as having a line budget, a paid administrator, and a curriculum that moves through committees and is recognized in an official catalog. Three questions shaped this study: (1) What is the current state of mature women's studies programs with respect to their faculties, students, curricula, classrooms, internal governance structure, and administrative relationships to their universities? (2) What has been the impact of these programs on their campuses and in their wider communities? (3) What dominant issues and needs are critical to the future of women's studies? Some of the indicators of the state of women's studies include enrollment growth, variety and depth of course offerings, and growing realization of institutional impact. Recommendations are offered regarding further study, development of materials, communications, and programmatic support. (LBH)
