Hall, Roberta M.; Sandler, Bernice R.
Ways that women are frequently treated in their relationships with faculty, administrators, staff, and male peers in campus situations and settings outside the classroom are discussed. Problems are highlighted in the following areas: admissions and financial aid; academic advising and career counseling; projects with other students and with faculty; lab and field work; work study and campus employment; internships; health care; campus safety; residential, social, and cultural life; athletics; and student government and leadership. Climate problems frequently experienced by women from special groups (minority women, older women, and disabled women) are also discussed. Included are policy recommendations for administrators, general institutional recommendations, and general recommendations for individuals, as well as recommendations concerning: academic advising and career counseling, training programs, residential life, curriculum, leadership, the media, women from special groups, and students.
