Design for Equity: Women and Leadership in Higher Education.
Konek, Carol W.; And Others
Twenty-one articles are compiled on the struggle of women for equity in education, including background material, theory, practice, accomplishments, and legislation. Plans, programs, and accomplishments are outlined for Project DELTA, the Women's Educational Equity grant program, which has as its goal the promotion of equity for women in higher education, specifically in leadership and decision-making roles. Research has been focused on aspects of behavioral changes for women: life and career planning, self-assessment of leadership qualities and leadership skills, as well as on institutional policies and goals. Among the topics discussed in this manual are the Women's Educational Equity Act, "sexism in academe," the advancement of women in higher education administration, women's equity as a university priority, the dilemma of the black woman in higher education, and the question of whether the woman changes the system or vice-versa. Addresses and programs from various fields, abstracts of DELTA workshop activities, biographical notes on all participants in the present manual, and a selected bibliography are included. (PJM)
