Gender Equity in Higher Education: Report on Self-Studies and Plans.
Sherman, Jane C.
This report summarizes the gender equity self-studies and plans for all six of the public, four-year universities and colleges in the State of Washington, as well as from the 27-member community college system. The evaluation encompassed 10 major areas: (1) the adoption of a nondiscrimination statement; (2) compliance procedures; (3) academic programs and admissions; (4) counseling and the use of appraisal and counseling materials; (5) student employment; (6) financial aid; (7) recreational activities; (8) student services available; (9) policies on sexual harassment, assault, abuse, and rape; and (10) intercollegiate athletics. Sections summarize the individual gender equity studies and plans submitted by each institution. Each section provides an abstract of the individual institutional study, as well as staff comments that either highlight gender equity issues or suggest areas for consideration in the plan. The report also provides the State Board for Community College Education (SBCCE) summary on behalf of all of the state's 27 community colleges. The main body of the SBCCE report is included. (GLR)
