Many Are Called, But Few Are Chosen.
Mattfield, Jacquelyn A.
There are three general categories of administrators in the Ivy League and most other schools: (1) those who are employed to maintain and develop the physical plant, to manage the business operations, alumnae and other public relations, and development; (2) those who work in admissions, financial aid, student affairs, the academic and personal counseling of students, placement, and the registrars office; and (3) the academic leaders of the university such as the president, chancellors, provosts, and the deans of faculties, of colleges, graduate and professional schools, and special programs. Women have traditionally been held from the ranks of those who are hired for administrative positions in universities. However, the solution to this unequal practice is seen to be easily solved in all except the last of the administrative categories. This document reviews the past and present history related to women in administrative positions in the Ivy League Schools, and offers hopes for further equality of opportunity in such positions. (HS)
