A Profile of Black Female Administrators at a Large Urban Public University.
Williams, Audrey Y.
Data are presented from a survey of black female college administrators conducted in the 1984-85 academic year at the City University of New York. Fifty-four women with the titles of vice-chancellor, college president, vice-president, dean, director, department chair, and assistant or associate to those titles, responded to the survey. Information was collected on: (1) age and family background; (2) educational background and salary; (3) work history; (4) work status; (5) current administrative title; (6) range of authority; (7) number of people supervised; (8) salary funding source; (9) percentage of time devoted to administration; (10) line or staff administrators; and (11) budget authority. The subjects were also asked how they found out about their current position. Administrative perceptions were identified through questions dealing with: pay equity; obvious path to higher level positions; the reason they were selected for their current position; their perceptions of the acceptance of their position; and feelings about being part of the central administrative team.
