This volume provides a guide to curricular change with respect to women of color. Included are case studies of the actual process of faculty transformation, 37 transformed undergraduate syllabi, and an interdisciplinary guide to teaching about Puerto Rican women.

The volume is divided into three major sections, the first of which highlights the actual process of faculty transformation and administrative support essential to curricular changes as it occurred on two of the participating campuses, UCLA and George Washington University. Section Two contains 37 transformed undergraduate course syllabi for courses in sociology, American history, and literature, and more, with brief essays describing professors' encounters with teaching the new texts. Section Three is an invaluable interdisciplinary guide to teaching about Puerto Rican women, prepared by a team of scholars at SUNY, Albany. It provided information about Puerto Rican women inside and outside Puerto Rico, as well as teaching strategies for integrating such information into the traditional curriculum.
