Campus 1970, Where Do Women Stand? Research Report of a Survey on Women in Academe.
Oltman, Ruth M.
This report describes the results of a questionnaire which was sent to presidents of 750 colleges and universities which hold institutional membership in the A.A.U.W.; 454 of these responded. The purpose of the questionnaire was to evaluate the activities of women and the extent to which they were involved in the university as students, administrators, faculty, and trustees. Specifically, an effort was made to determine the participation of women in decisionmaking; personnel policies affecting hiring, promotion, maternity leave, and nepotism; special programs designed for mature women students; utilization of women's abilities in major offices and committees, as department heads, principal administrators and trustees; and general attitudes of administration regarding women. The report presents the background of the study and related studies, the research procedure, a description of the total sample, the results of the study, and a summary and conclusions. (AF)
