Periodic Review Report to Commission on Higher Education
The section on Project CHANCE describes the program and grant that enabled the establishment of the Women's Center at Brooklyn College, providing re-entry courses and support for 100 non-traditional returning women students in its second year. Proposals for new courses focused on women and violence, lesbian experience, women in arts and music, and gendered political economies of power are also included. The course on lesbian experience would prove to be quite controversial, where obtaining approval became a lengthy process. Finally, by providing proof of increasing enrollment in program courses, the report authors make the case for faculty tenure and a new process for departmental approval for faculty releases to teach women's studies courses.
