The Status of Female Faculty at West Chester University of Pennsylvania: An Historical Perspective, 1974-1989.
Keetz, Mary A.
This report presents data from the West Chester University segment of a 16-year longitudinal study of female faculty in the state system and its 14 universities. The study is designed to address the following questions: What are the numbers and distribution among professional ranks of female faculty prior to the State System's 1988 affirmative action plan? Have the number and percentage of female faculty remained constant? Are female faculty represented equitably at each professional rank? The information permits comparisons in the following areas: (1) the numbers and percentages of full-time faculty by sex as related to the numbers and percentages for West Chester alone, the State System as a whole, and similar Category II-A and II-B public universities; (2) the distribution of full-time faculty among professional ranks by sex as related to the numbers and percentages for West Chester, the State System, and similar Category II-A and II-B public universities; (3) the numbers and percentages of full-time faculty at each professorial rank by sex as related to the numbers and percentages for West Chester, the State System, and similar Category II-A and II-B; (4) student full-time equivalent enrollment (FTE) by enrollment status and sex for West Chester and the State System; and (5) ratios of full-time total faculty to undergraduate student FTE enrollment by sex for West Chester and the State System. An appendix contains a summary of a sex discrimination complaint. Contains 26 references. (GLR)
