Introduction

Prompted by the affirmation of Abilene Christian University’s mission statement, ACU offers an interdisciplinary minor in ethnic and women’s studies. Both male and female students of every
ethnic identity are welcomed and encouraged to pursue this minor. The intent of the minor is not just to provide a token look at the contributions of ethnic groups and women in various fields, but to provide students with a critical filter through which to view other learning and life experiences.

The goals for the ethnic and women’s studies minor are:

          • To provide resources for the further incorporation of the contributions of ethnic groups
             and women into all pertinent disciplines.

          • Critically examine cultural assumptions about ethnicity, gender, race and class in light of
             information made available by new research about current issues that ethnic groups and
             women face academically, professionally and personally.

          • Address the intersection of ethnicity, race, class and gender in contemporary society from 
             a Christian perspective.

          • Establish in the campus community an awareness of the values, contributions and
             perspectives of ethnic groups and women.
