Cross-Referencing the Professorship, Male Induction and Female Sexuality Models: An Inherent "Inappropriateness" Referrent.
Wiles, David K.; Wiles, Marilyn M.
Appropriateness for any particular organization role involves a calculation of identifiable expectations. The induction phase of new members identifies a set of role expectations. Unobtrusive but obvious "other" expectations play a large part in determining the appropriateness of both role and induction in organizations. This paper discusses the unconventional expectations associated with the label, "feminine," as it affects role referrents of professorship within higher education. It is hypothesized that the present lack of consistent expectations for female faculty has created role confusion that cannot be alleviated by some manipulation of traditional bureaucratic, male, or induction role expectations. Specifically, cross-referencing the conventional classifications of university professional, male induction, and female sexuality, reveals two types of role inappropriateness for the female professor: (1) that in direct conflict with the traditional male induction model, and/or (2) a professor role that has no "correct" sexuality referrent.
