Reports of Associated Women Students Commission on the Status of Women, 1969-1970.
Kansas Univ., Lawrence.
This report contains 3 studies made by the Commission on the Status of Women at Kansas University. The first is a survey of the number of female students and faculty members in 7 historically male-dominated schools--Architecture, Business, Engineering, Journalism, Law, Pharmacy, and Social Welfare. The Deans and Assistant Deans of these schools were interviewed regarding the participation of women in their departments, in terms of involvement in honorary societies, scholarships awarded, placement services, dropouts, and specific fields chosen. There seemed to be no substantive proof of overt academic discrimination against women. The second study is a report of the Scholarships Awards Committee, which investigated the selection and granting of financial assistance to students. The records indicated that women were awarded National Defense Student loans as often as men. The last study is an analysis of freshmen women responses in interviews on factors influencing their choice of a residence hall. The freshmen were given a preference card on which they could express their preference for one of four living plans: all women's halls with or without closing hours, and coeducational halls with or without closing hours.
