The Teaching Collective: A WGSS Approach To Undergraduate Learning

Joan E. Schulz Endowment

Created with seed money and fundraising ingenuity by Professor Emerita Judith Fetterley and other members of the Community of Founders, the Endowment generates income to fund a biennial lecture on "Feminism, Knowledge, and Pedagogy" as well as two graduate assistants assigned to the undergraduate Teaching Collective.

Named in honor of Emerita Professor of English and Women's Studies Joan E. Schulz (1930-2016), who, with Professor Fetterley, founded the Undergraduate Teaching Collective, the Endowment commemorates the vital aspects of second-wave feminism that continue to energize Women's Studies, in particular the connection between academic knowledge and political activism that Professor Schulz brought to her own pedagogy.
