The Higher, the Fewer. Report and Recommendations: Committee to Study the Status of Women in Graduate Education and Later Careers. Submitted to: The Executive Board of the Graduate School, The University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan, March 1974.
Michigan Univ., Ann Arbor.
The Task Force on the Status of Women in Graduate Education at the University of Michigan produced this final report concerning: issues and problems regarding women in higher education, the committee to study the status of women in graduate education and later careers, special needs of nontraditional graduate students, access to graduate school, transition from masters to doctoral studies, and transition from doctoral study to professional careers. Recommendations suggest: (1) more flexible admissions and financial aids policies, and specific programs to benefit parttime and returning students; (2) further research into the lower enrollment rates of women and the active recruitment of women in the sciences; (3) further investigation of the causes of high female attrition after the master's degree, and a positive effort to increase the number of female faculty members; (4) a review of the educational effectiveness of current terminal master's programs; (5) graduate faculty develop systematic approaches to the placement of doctoral students and that departmental placement efforts be regularly reviewed; (6) a senior staff person in the Graduate School be employed whose responsibility it is to enhance and oversee the educational experiences of graduate students.
