In the summer of 1997, the committee met and forwarded its recommendation to Dr. McNairy that Nancy Smith serve as the Director of Women's Studies for the 1997-8 AY. This was the first action which the committee took, having been ormed in the 1997 semester.

The committee approved four courses in the 1997-9 AY:

Anth 226: Comparative Societies: Women and Ethnography
Hist 209: Topics in U.S. History: Women in American History
Edfn 386/586 and WSTU 491: Critical Pedagogy, Justice and El Salvador
WSTU 491: Women Scientists: Success Stories

Schedule of Meetings:

The committee meets on an as-needed basis. When we receive new courses, we meet or correspond by e-mail and have a two week turn around time for our decisions.

For the coming year:

The committee will be designing a new brochure for the program and will be preparing a set of guidelines for faculty to regularize the course proposal submission sequence.

Respectfully submitted,

Beverly Schneller
