Guidebook for Using the Educational Equity Options Model in Postsecondary Institutions. Final Edition.
Ware, James; And Others
The Educational Equity Options Model (EEOM) is a strategy developed to increase the recruitment and retention of female students in non-traditional occupational education. This guide provides information on applying the EEOM to 11 two-year colleges in New York state and is designed to facilitate implementation of the model in other two-year colleges. Following introductory materials, including a list of institutions participating in the New York project, an overview of the EEOM is presented, describing the need for gender equity and procedures used in the New York project. The next section details the components of the EEOM, while the third section describes strategies for implementing the model, focusing on the following phases: (1) the organization phase, highlighting methods for building the team, leader responsibilities, issues or problems to anticipate, and hints for success; (2) start-up phase, focusing on strategies for assessing the institution, identifying barriers to women's participation, discussing and selecting appropriate strategies, and developing an action plan; (3) implementation phase, providing definitions of roles and concerns during implementation, selected examples of gender-related activities, and discussions of other potential issues and concerns; and (4) assessment phase, describing issues related to evaluating the short- and long-term accomplishments of the plan and system accountability outcomes related to gender institutionalization. The final section summarizes the model and implementation strategies. Contains 32 print and 21 media resources. Four appendixes include sex equity awareness training session materials and recommendations, selected institutional barrier assessment items and instruments, sample equity action plans from nine colleges, and selected resources on gender equity and strategies.
