Dear Dean Lockhart:
Initiated by student interest, the Women in Agricultural Development (WIAD)
program has put together and agreed upon a proposal for a graduate
concentration leading to a Certificate in Women in Development (WID). Faculty
were queried as to the WID content of their courses. Thus far there are 5
courses that have 100% WID content; five courses have between 20% and 30%
WID content, and an additional five courses have less than 20% WID content.
These correspond to Group 1, Group 2 and Group 3 (see enclosed). Presently,
all the courses are taught in IFAS and CLAS.
The proposal is to have 9 credit hours for the Master's program and 12 credit
hours for the PhD program; two courses from Group 1 and one course from
Group 2 for the Master's level; and two courses from Group 1, one course from
Group 2, and one course from any category or perhaps research credits for the
Currently, the courses are spread over fall and spring terms, and it would be
helpful if students who had taken these courses would be allowed to count them
towards the Certificate.
Would you kindly consider this proposal for commencement in the Fall Term
1992? Thank you for your assistance.
