Women Outpaced Men in Faculty and Tenure Increases Between 1976-77 and 1977-78. Special Report, U.S. Department of Education.
National Center for Education Statistics (DHEW), Washington, DC.
Results of a national survey of salaries, tenure, and fringe benefits of full-time college instructional faculty are presented. The survey was part of the Higher Education General Information Survey. Overall, the number of full-time instructional faculty increased slightly from 1976-77 to 1977-78. While the number of men remained approximately the same, the number of women increased by 2.3 percent. The largest increase for women came in the lecturer category, the lowest rank. The percentage changes for women exceeded those for men in all ranks, and although tenured men far outnumbered tenured women, women scored higher percentage gains in tenure than men during this period. Mean salaries of men were higher than those of women, whatever the academic rank, at all institutional levels. Salaries by rank for different types of institutions are compared, and fringe benefits for public and private institutions are contrasted. Charts and tables illustrate the short narrative description. (SW)
