The Status of Women Faculty at Bowling Green State University.
Bowling Green State Univ., OH.
In response to the increasing concern in the academic professions about the systematic sex bias faced by women academicians, the Faculty Senate of Bowling Green State University appointed an Ad Hoc committee on the Status of Women Faculty in the fall of 1971. The committee was charged with conducting an empirical study on existing sex differentials in areas of particular concern to University faculty. The committee found in its study that sex discrimination does exist at Bowling Green in the areas of hiring, promotion, tenure, rank, numbers, and salary. Thus, recommendations are made by the committee concerning: (1) the implementation of an affirmative action program; (2) the appointment of an assistant provost for women; (3) the organization of a permanent Commission on the Status of Women; (4) the equalization of status of men and women faculty; (5) the appointment of women to policymaking posts; (6) equality in hiring practices; and (7) the inclusion of child-care and maternity leave provisions in faculty contracts.
