Research and Support Strategies For Women's Higher Education.
Babbitt, Samuel F.; And Others
Inadequate support is presently offered for the study of certain important questions which have serious implications for educational policies affecting women. Priority should be given to the support of those areas of research and program development and evaluation that have the most critical implications for both the higher education of women and women's status in institutions of higher education. Support should include: (1) research on coeducational and sex education experiences, outcomes of affirmative action, career patterns of women, living arrangements, intellectual development, women's psychological autonomy, social policies regarding families; (2) development and evaluation of women's studies, women's centers, counseling services, efforts to encourage women to enter other than traditional majors and/or career fields, "coping training," sex distributions, the means to raise the level of women's qualitative skills, classroom sex ratios; recruitment of women to the field of educational evaluation, statistics as a more integral part of women's education, efforts to attract women faculty; and (3) strategies to improve program development, information storage, and to encourage new hypotheses pertinent to woman's education and development.
