and Scientific Literacy: Building Two-Way Streets
The Women and Scientific Literacy project, which ended in 1999,
sought to make science more attractive to women by expanding the
content and teaching methods of the science curriculum in higher
education, both within traditional science departments and within
humanities and social science courses. Made possible by an award
from the National Science Foundation and with leadership from AAC&U's
Program on the Status and Education
of Women, this initiative brought together ten competitively
chosen colleges and universities in a three-year curriculum and
faculty development project.
