Report of the Special Committee on the Status of Women at UCSC.
California Univ., Santa Cruz. Special Committee on the Status of Women at UCSC.
The status of women at the University of California-Santa Clara is indicated in reference to faculty numbers, rank, administration, regularization of nonladder appointments, tenure, merit increases, and termination. Recommendations suggest: (1) UCSC should strive to achieve in its ladder ranks a percentage of women equal to that of women who received Ph.D.'s from the 10 leading universities between 1962-1967, that is 12% (2) UCSC should give high priority to correcting the imbalance existing in administration and policymaking positions; (3) Boards of studies and colleges should review their recruitment procedures; (4) UCSC should not neglect minority needs; (5) any faculty should be entitled to unpaid maternity leave of two quarters; (6) any nontenured faculty members who become pregnant should be allowed an extension of the appointment for one year for each pregnancy; and (7) the Special Committee on the Status of Women should be continued for another year.
