Profile with information of interest to women are presented on about 600 colleges, based on the results of a questionnaire completed by campus administrators. Information on each campus includes the following: racial/ethnic/gender breakdowns of student populations, faculty/student gender, the most popular majors for women and the percentage of women in nontraditional majors, the percentage of women on the faculty and among the administrators; the percentage of women students in leadership positions, and the percentage of women participating in intercollegiate and intramural sports. The guide also covers: campus security measures; women's studies programs; assaults reported for 1980-1981; services especially for minority women; weekend and evening classes; sexual harassment policies; childcare facilities on and off campus; career counseling, health care, and other services; students' advocacy organizations; women's centers; networking with alumnae; centers for research on women; services for returning women students; sports scholarships; and intercollegiate sports available to women. Institutions are also rated on three categories: women in leadership positions, women and the curriculum, and women and athletics. A chart on sports available at each college, an index of institutions, and a questionnaire are included. (SW)
