Gender Equity in Higher Education: 1992 Progress Report.
Washington State Higher Education Coordinating Board, Olympia.
This interim report summarizes the progress and future directions of the Gender Equity Plans submitted by Washington State's public four-year universities and colleges, and its community college system. The report represents a monitoring of institutional and system efforts to address issues of gender equity affecting students in the areas specified in the state legislation that include academic programs, financial aid, student services, and intercollegiate athletics. Institutions provided the following: (1) evaluation measures undertaken to date to address discrepancies identified in the 1990 self-study; (2) identification of any new gender equity issues which may have emerged; and (3) specifications for additional activities to be undertaken in the next 2 years to address remaining issues of gender equity. An appendix provides comparison tables of selected features of intercollegiate athletics in 1988-89 and 1991-92, and a 1991-92 gender equity study of athletic participation paid for with state money. The report notes that, although neither the institutions nor the community college system identified new gender issues, all reported areas of progress and clarified their intentions to continue monitoring areas of concern.
