The virtual library of work and family syllabi was created to encourage faculty in different disciplines to include work and family topics in their courses. Readings, lectures, and class assignments are included in these syllabi.  Additional older syllabi can be located in the syllabi archive.  If you would like to contribute a course syllabus, please contact the Executive Office at

The course syllabi are covered by pertinent copyright laws and should be considered published materials, authored by the faculty members who submitted them.
