The Status of Women Faculty at Illinois State University 1970-71.
Illinois State Univ., Normal.
This paper is the product of a research committee formed to make a study of the status of women at Illinois State University (ISU). Of primary concern are questions relating to equality of women in rank, number, promotion, salary, tenure, and opportunities for advancement. Results of the study show that: (1) although women comprise 28% of the faculty primarily responsible for teaching, over half of the women faculty hold rank below that of assistant professor and only 11% of the women hold the rank of professor as compared with 17% of the men; (2) women number 383, which is 31% of the total faculty; (3) 61% of the part-time faculty are women; (4) women in most ranks and colleges earn less than men, whether one compares medians or means; (5) 26% of the faculty with tenure are women, 21% on sabbatical leaves are women, and 23% of those on nonsabbatical leaves are women; and (6) it appears that promotions and salary increases are slower for women than for men.
