The Campus Climate Revisited: Chilly for Women Faculty, Administrators, and Graduate Students. [Final Report.]
Sandler, Bernice R.
The Project on the Status and Education of Women (PSEW) of the Association of American Colleges describes ways in which women faculty, administrators, and graduate students in higher education are often treated differently from men. Under a grant from the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE), PSEW investigated negative behaviors and attitudes toward women professionals and pre-professionals on campus in order to assist institutions create and adapt policies and programs to counteract these problems and provide strategies for change. The FIPSE-supported report, "The Campus Climate Revisted: Chilly For Women Faculty, Administrators, and Graduate Students, "addresses such issues as stereotypes, collegiality, attractiveness, sexuality, sexual harassment, and devaluation. Approximately 100 recommendations are provided. As a result of this PSEW project, the existence of subtle discriminatory attitudes and behaviors affecting the hiring and advancement of women professionals in higher education is confirmed (but noted to be mostly unintentional and unnoticed by the majority of men and women involved). Ten appendices offer the following: a copy of "The Campus Climate Revisited: Chilly for Women Faculty, Administrators and Graduate Students"; budget; "On Campus With Women"; advisory committee meeting agenda and list of participants; workshop agenda; cover letter and press release; promotional materials; extension of project request; sample letters and evaluation questionnaire responses; and selected press articles.
