Report on Women at the University of Delaware.
Dahl, K. H.
This study found the status of faculty women to be similar to that in other college studies: women are a small percentage of the faculty, are clustered in the lower ranks, are not tenured, are victims of nepotism rules, receive lower pay than men, and have less chance than men for promotion. The administration of the University is, like the faculty, dominated by men. While administrative departments are largely staffed by women, men head the departments. The women nonprofessional staff is made up almost entirely of clerical workers. The salary for these workers is relatively low for their job responsibilities. The University seems to have little reluctance about educating women at the undergraduate level; however, women earned only 5% of the doctorates award in the last 5 years at Delaware. Recommendations follow previously published Affirmative Action Plans. Two papers by Sheila Tobias on Female Studies are included in the Appendices. (LR)
