Minutes of the Women's Studies Committee of the Whole

In an effort to decentralize decision-making power and include multiple perspectives both in program governance and in courses taught, the Brooklyn College Women's Studies Program created new and innovative structures for its operations. Rather than have one program chair or coordinator, each year the program was led by two co-coordinators. These meeting minutes are an example of the ways that faculty collaborated to solve shortages as a result of budget cuts that threatened co-taught classes, and shared leadership. Here, faculty debate becoming a department versus an interdisciplinary program, and discuss the establishment of a women's studies club.
