Women in Colleges and Universities. Equity for Women in Higher Education Project.
Carroll, Mary R.; Clark, David L.
Seven themes concerning the role of women in higher education institutions are considered, generalizations about each theme are proposed, and literature supporting each area is cited. The analyses are designed for use as training modules for enhancing women's equity in colleges and universities. The seven themes are as follows: the productivity of women faculty members, recruitment and selection of women faculty members, women faculty and the university reward system, socialization of women in colleges and universities, administrative opportunities for women in colleges and universities, responses of women to discriminatory behavior in colleges and universities. It is suggested that the topics can be separated and used singly in several ways (e.g., as class presentations, informational units for college administrators and faculty, or as basic information for a newsletter). Questions are posed for each area in order to provoke examination of the issues at the personal and institutional levels of experience. References are included, and a slide tape and transparencies are available to accompany the print materials. (SW)
