Women at UCI. A Handbook for All Students, Faculty, and Staff.
California Univ., Irvine.
In the spring of 1974, the Program in Comparative Culture offered a class entitled "Women in Higher Education." Out of that class, which explored the traditional values of education and employment and their effect on women in academia, came a series of questions concerning the status of women on the Irving campus. This handbook is the final result of that class and its exploratory surveys. This handbook attempts to show the current situation for women at Irving: the present status of female employees and students, the academic and support services available to them, and existing vehicles for further action. Through pointing out problems, disseminating information, and suggesting goals, this handbook hopes to provoke questions and actions to improve the status of women on the campus. Discussed in the handbook is the present status of women on the Irving campus (student surveys, statistical delineation); women's studies at the University of California-Irvine (historical and present status, classes offered in 1975); new directions (affirmative action, groups and services); and the appendix that includes the questionnaire, responsbilities of an affirmative action officer, federal laws of concern to affirmative action and equal employment for women.
