Toward Excellence & Equity: The Scholarship on Women as a Catalyst for Change in the University.
Fritsche, JoAnn M.
This handbook was designed to help educators in higher education initiate a project that will integrate women's research, values, and perspectives into the curriculum and promote equity for campus women. There are six chapters. The first chapter examines ways to develop support for a curriculum project. Separate sections discuss rationales and specific steps to take to gain faculty and administrative support. Chapter 2 presents principles and methods of implementing a pilot project. The third chapter offers suggestions for securing support to ensure project continuation and eventual institutionalization of project goals and strategies. Chapter 4 presents the experiences of some project coordinators, who describe the risks, difficulties, and rewards of developing and coordinating curriculum integration projects. In the fifth chapter, five experienced faculty members tell how students and colleagues responded when faculty presented courses in which academic feminist scholarship and values were integrated. The concluding chapter contains three essays that explain how a curriculum integration project can be related to the objectives of facilitating change in the institution. Assessment instruments for project evaluation are provided in the appendix. A bibliography of resources is also included. (RM)
