The guide also covers: campus security measures; women's studies programs; assaults reported for 1980-1981; services especially for minority women; weekend and evening classes; sexual harassment policies; childcare facilities on and off campus; career counseling, health care, and other services; students' advocacy organizations; women's centers; networking with alumnae; centers for research on women; services for returning women students; sports scholarships; and intercollegiate sports available to women. Institutions are also rated on three categories: women in leadership positions, women and the curriculum, and women and athletics.
