|Agency History||Women's studies courses were first offered at Bowling Green State University in 1972, and degree programs (bachelor and minor) were first offered in 1978. After being housed in a hotel suite in the student union during the 1980s, by 1990 the program had been relocated to Shatzel Hall. As it had since its inception, the program continued to function as both an academic unit and as a source of programming, information, and support for women on campus and throughout the region. The Women's Studies Program offered courses for Women’s Studies majors and minors as well as a large offering of WS 200 (Introduction to Women’s Studies) which fulfills a general education/BG Perspective cultural diversity requirement. In 1990, the Program began offering graduate courses and in 2000 the Graduate Certificate program was initiated. |
|Scope and Content||This collection is arranged in the order it was received, in what appears to be two separate additions. The first group (approximately boxes 1-13] are in rough alphabetical order. There is less order to the second group (boxes 13-16). |
The collection includes meeting minutes, fliers and brochures for programming, presentation materials, program reviews, program coverage, and administrative materials. The meeting minutes cover the advisory committee, executive committee, program committee and steering committee. Other information is on grants awarded to the program, alumni award winners, the WS 200 course offering, and women's history month celebrations. Also included in the collection is a series of electronic files that include such things as oral histories. Contact the University Archives for additional information about accessing the electronic files for this collection.
Collection size: 17 letter-sized manuscript boxes (5.67 cubic feet)
