Proposals will be reviewed by selected members serving on the Academic Issues Subcommittee of the President's Commission on the Status of Women. Successful proposals should demonstrate a commitment to innovative teaching techniques as well as careful consideration of the intersection of women's concerns with notions about race/ethnicity, class, and sexual orientation. Priority will be given to courses that are developed or revised for the undergraduate curriculum and those that can be implemented within two years.
