Committee Report on the Status of Women.
Peek, George A., Jr.
The status of women was examined by a committee of men and women for an academic year, with consideration given to studies from other major universities and informed witness testimony. Discriminatory practices and means of complying with anti-discriminatory legislation are discussed. Recommendations are offered on: the role of women who can serve only part-time; tenure for part-time faculty women; recruitment, salaries, and promotion of women faculty members; recruitment of women for graduate study; policy of hiring husband and wife; and opportunities for women's studies was not examined due to an apparent trend of universities to move away from such separate curriculums. A body of supportive evidence is included to support the recommendations made. It is further suggested that copies of the report be given to department chairpersons and that an on-going College Commission be appointed. (LBH)
