Standards for Women in Higher Education. Affirmative Policy in Achieving Sex Equality in the Academic Community.
American Association of Univ. Women, Washington, DC.
In view of existing inequities and discrimination against women in higher education that deprive them of quality education and educational opportunity, there is a need for leadership in our colleges and universities to remedy institutional policies and practices that contribute to the preservation of those inequities and support sex discrimination. To this end, every institution is urged to develop an affirmative policy and plan for action regarding women students, faculty, administrators, nonacademic staff, and trustees. A statement of the policy, including a plan and time-table for implementation, should be published and available for review by any person in the institution. These American Association of University Women (AAUW) standards are stated in terms of general objectives for women students, faculty and administration, and administrative practice, and suggested related operational criteria, which provide means for assessing the achievement of those objectives.
