The Status of Faculty Women at Indiana State University, A Survey.
Indiana State Univ., Terre Haute.
This document presents the results of the investigation of the President's Commission on the Status of Faculty Women at Indiana State University. The study indicates that discrimination in varying degrees does exist on the Indiana State University campus, a condition that has been declared unconstitutional by the Federal government. Recommendations are made to alleviate discriminatory practices at the institution. Among these recommendations are the following: (1) the university shall reassert its support of the Civil Rights Act, declaring that it shall not discriminate against persons on the basis of sex or marital status in hiring, promotion, tenure, salary, or in any other area; (2) the President shall require departments or schools with few or no women to examine the national degree lists and actively seek qualified women when appropriate; (3) the administration should conduct periodic checks to see where women remain in rank longer than men in the departments and then examine the procedures and seek explanations to prove that discrimination is not at work in those departments; and (4) the university shall take immediate steps to remedy salary differentials that exist for women presently on the faculty when the salaries of women suffer by comparison with those of men with equal training, comparable contributions to the university, and length of service.
