Preliminary Report of the UW Faculty Women's Survey.
Van Dyk, Jane; Freeman, Bonnie Cook
The status of women faculty at the University of Wisconsin was investigated in a survey sent to all faculty women on the tenure track in teaching departments. Questionnaire responses were categorized into academic qualifications; teaching responsibilities; publications; marital status; family background; religion; organizational membership; politics; attitude toward university-degree of satisfaction with the institution; attitude toward unions, collective bargaining, strikes; attitudes toward women's issues; and local issues. Results indicated faculty women tend to be overwhelmingly single and viewed themselves as successful, well-paid career women. Faculty women were found in the highest numbers in the lowest rank, assistant professor, with only 26% having the rank of full professor, and the latter tended to be found most in traditionally women's fields. Further study is recommended. (MJM)
