The Junior Year at Douglass Program in Women's Studies.
Burstyn, Joan N.; Hartman, Mary S.
In 1983, Douglass College and the Women's Studies Program of the Faculty Arts and Sciences at Rutgers University were awarded a 3-year Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE) grant to develop a junior year at Douglass Program in Women's Studies. It allowed students from other four-year colleges to spend their junior year at Douglass taking courses in women's studies and participating in customized career planning workshops. A project overview is followed by information on the background and origins of the project and a project description. The description covers program planning and administration, development of an application packet and brochure, spreading the work about the program and recruitment of students, admission to and enrollment of students in the program, programs for students enrolled at Douglass, and the career development component. The project resulted in (1) career focus materials available for national distribution and (2) a select group of students who attended Douglass for 3 years. Appended are: (I) insights for FIPSE and (II) a series of related documents, including 3 career focus booklets ("Discover Your Career" in Communications, Social Sciences, and Math and Science); a Job Survival Skills Training Manual; the application packet and program brochure; update announcements and flyers; accept and admit letters; an agenda for faculty/staff workshop; a flyer and agenda for proposed regional conference; the schedule for fall 1985 workshop; list of participants in evaluation session; flyers for 1986-87 workshops; an article about the first group of students; and a publicity flyer for career materials.
