Journal of the American Association of Women in Community and Junior Colleges, 1989
The 1989 issue of the Journal of the American Association of Women in Community and Junior Colleges focuses on the leadership role of women at all organizational levels of the two-year college. It includes the following articles: (1) "Gender Issues and Community College Leadership," by Carolyn Desjardins, which speculates that the recently emerging trend toward more humane leadership styles might be due in part to the presence of more women in administrative positions in higher education; (2) "Women, Higher Education, and the Psychology of Power," by Carol Berrey, which integrates feminist psychology, principles of modern management, and an insider's view of higher education; (3) "Cognitive Differences of Male and Female Administrators," by Ruth H. Doyle and Barbara Mueller, which reviews gender differences in administrators' perception and use of symbols, cultural determinants, and modalities of inference; (4) "Perspectives on Leadership and Black Women Presidents," by JoAnn Bradley, Patricia Carey, and Evelyn Whitaker, which presents findings from a survey of 15 black women college presidents; (5) "Developing a Policy Approach to Professionally Appropriate Faculty/Student Sexual Relations on Community College Campuses," by Doric Little, which considers the legal and policy implications of sexual relationships between students and faculty; (6) "The Feminization of (American) Poverty," by Janet K. (Weir) Garza, which reviews statistics on poverty and argues that education and skills development can break the cycle of poverty for women. (ALB)
