Undergraduate Focus on Women
For undergraduates, the focus on women plays out across the curriculum, with courses highlighting women’s issues, women’s learning styles, and women’s leadership development. A few examples:
- A capstone art therapy course that focuses on developing women’s leadership skills by placing students in positions as practicing assistants to professional female art therapists.
- Chemistry courses that target development of skills (collaboration, critical thinking, self-advocacy) needed to excel in traditionally male-dominated STEM fields.
- Economics courses that explore such issues as discrimination against women and minorities, women in the labor force, and women’s leadership.
- Sociology courses that examine the discrimination women experience in society, business, marriage, and careers.
- A historical preservation effort that has students creating an Ohio Women’s Heritage Trail—identifying and recognizing overlooked contributions by women to Ohio history and culture.
