Final Report of the Commission on The Status and Needs of Women at Carnegie-Mellon University.
Carnegie-Mellon Univ., Pittsburgh, PA.
The Commission on the Status and Needs of Women at Carnegie-Mellon University (CMU) was established in 1971 as a result of discussions held between members of the administration and representatives of women employees. The Commission was instructed at the outset of its founding to examine University operations that pertain to women students and employees, make recommendations to enhance the opportunities for women at CMU, suggest broad outlines of an affirmative action plan to correct discriminatory practices, and make recommendations concerning a continuing vehicle to monitor implementation of such a plan. Findings show that programs of special interest to women have fared rather badly at CMU and that as a consequence, women in recent years received only 25% of undergraduate degrees, compared to 40% during the 1930's. This final report offers recommendations and conclusions that will hopefully alleviate this and other problems concerning discriminatory practices against women. (HS)
