    Undergraduate Students

    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.

    • A biostatistics class that emphasizes the scholarship of women researchers to transform perceptions of statistics as a “male” field.

    • Core courses that delve into women’s contributions to art, social justice, and U.S. history (through a project in which students identify a “founding mother”).

    • A history course that studies women’s agency and activism.

    • A nursing course focused on women’s health challenges.

    • A math course that prepares students for the financial decisions women need to make when caring for their families—including money management, student loans, mortgages, and retirement.

    • A legal studies course that analyzes women-focused legal problems (pregnancy discrimination, compensation for female employees, and other issues that affect women).

    • Art courses dedicated to creating a non-competitive studio space where students are free to make mistakes, embrace risk, and share their stories and ideas.
