Affirmative Action: Women's Rights on Campus.
Shulman, Carol Herrnstadt
Traditional sex discrimination on college and university campuses is coming to a halt. Recent Federal affirmative action requirements call for the development of procedures to promote and ensure the equitable treatment of faculty and staff women in employment and promotion to provide them with fair representation in all aspects of campus activities. More than 80% of the nation's colleges and universities are affected by the Federal affirmative action program, and are threatened with loss of Federal funds for failure to comply. This report examines the current law governing affirmative action programs and sex discrimination on campus, and describes the approaches universities and colleges have taken to comply with the law.
