On Campus with Women, v13 n4 Spr 1984, v14 n1 Sum 1984
Developments in education, employment, and the courts concerning the status of women are covered in these newsletter issues. A special article on the effects of the recent Supreme Court decision in "Grove City College v. Bell" is included. The Court held that when a college received federal money only through its financial aid program, then only the financial aid program is covered by Title IX; the institution can discriminate elsewhere in its programs. Title IX prohibits sex discrimination in federally-assisted education programs and activities. In addition to the Grove City decision and its implications, attention is directed to other court cases affecting female college faculty. Other news reported concerns: women college presidents, court litigation, men's studies, sexual harassment and discrimination, differences in the amount of financial aid awards to males and females; minority women in medical schools; a child care center at Purdue University; supporting women in graduate education; women in sports; employment issues including the job outlook; pay differentials; disabled women and employment; incorporating and integrating women's studies into the mainstream curriculum; and communication differences between men and women. A federal and international update is provided, and information on resource guides is included. (SW)
