HISTORICAL SKETCH

On November 5, 1981, the University of North Dakota Senate approved a women's studies program. The Association of Women Students had gathered 435 signatures in support of the program, and UND President Thomas Clifford had spoken in favor of it. The following year, the program was placed under the auspices of the College of Arts and Sciences, as recommended by the University Council.

The Women's Studies program gives students an opportunity to learn more about women's lives. Using gender as a category of analysis, courses examine women's experiences and the institutions and systems that affect women's lives. Women's Studies has been offered as a minor at the University of North Dakota since 1984.

SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE

Women's Studies Records date primarily from the 1980's. Materials include all entries from the Women's Studies Essay Contest (1988-1993), information about curriculum integration projects, and "Classroom Follies", which takes a humorous look at a serious issue: sexual harassment. The Records also contain course lists, syllabi, and Executive Committee minutes and agendas. Information about Women's Studies programs at other University's are also present.
