But We Will Persist. A Comparative Research Report on the Status of Women in Academe.
A national survey was conducted by the American Association of University Women (AAUW) in 1970 to assess the status of women on U.S. campuses and the extent of their participation at all levels of involvement as students, administrators, faculty, and trustees. The study, "Campus 1970, Where Do Women Stand?" involved over 450 colleges and universities holding corporate membership in AAUW. An update is provided of "Campus 1970," which was designed to provide information about changes and trends in the status of women. The earlier report provided data for the years 1967-70, and the more recent survey concentrates on developments from 1973-76. The recent survey sought to identify new programs, structures, and practices that have been initiated by colleges and universities, and problems college presidents have faced and perceived areas of need in complying with the Title IX regulation. Contents of the report are: a summary of the major findings of the study; conclusions and major recommendations for expanding and equalizing women's educational and employment opportunities on campuses; a description of the method of data collection and analysis; a comparison of the 1976 survey sample with the 1970 sample and with related national statistics for colleges and universities; data analysis on the many dimensions of the status of women on the campuses in their roles as students, administrators, and faculty members; and the impact of equal opportunity laws on women. A list of participating colleges and a sample questionnaire are included. (SW)
