Women in Postsecondary Education in New York State. Students, Faculty, and Administrators. An Information Paper.
New York State Education Dept., Albany.
Current data for the State of New York and the nation as a whole are reviewed to determine the status of women in postsecondary education in New York. Areas of progress are noted and other areas where problems still exist are described. It is hoped that this paper will serve as a background document for reviewing statewide policy and will assist those who must respond to the provisions of Title IX. Included in this report are data on: population profiles by age cohorts and educational attainment; college participation by age groups, by level of enrollment, and by degree level attainment; participation by type of attendance and by sector; faculty hiring patterns and salaries; administration; and programs. It is concluded that women have made progress in access to postsecondary education, although they are more likely than men to be part-time students. At the advanced degree levels, they have historically received fewer degrees and rank correspondingly lower among faculty and other educational staff. More women are needed on faculties, particularly at the upper levels, and an expanded curriculum is needed in which sex role stereotyping is no longer an issue. (LBH)
