Report on the Status of Women at the University of Washington; Part I: Faculty and Staff.
Washington Univ., Seattle.
The purpose of this report was to determine if sex discrimination exists at the University of Washington, to identify the problems in this area and to facilitate change. This report examines: (1) the numbers and location in the academic ranks and departments of faculty women; (2) their availability for hiring, meaning the presence of trained women in the community, as well as the women already working within the institution; (3) hiring practices; (4) promotion; (5) salaries; (6) the top positions held in the traditionally "women's professions;" (7) top positions held in the university as a whole; (8) top positions held in the research and special facilities; and (9) the effect of the nepotism rule on the employment of women faculty and the obstacle to promotion and tenure by the frequent appointment of faculty women to part-time positions. Another section of the report examines salary differentials and promotion practices for: exempt staff, classified staff, and academic staff. The report concludes that sex discrimination does exists and suggests measures for rectifying this situation. (AF)
