The Minnesota Plan II for Improving the Academic Environment and Campus Climate for University of Minnesota Women Faculty, Administrators, and Academic Professional Staff. A Working Paper--December 1988.
Minnesota Univ., Minneapolis.
The Plan addresses ways of creating and maintaining productive work environments for academic women at the University of Minnesota. The plan is intended to be flexible, yet sufficiently detailed to provide concrete ideas and direction to units working to establish more inspiring and hospitable workplaces for their faculty and staff. Its focus is on recruitment, retention, professional development, and recognition; instruction and curriculum restructuring; campus attitudes, norms, and values; and the institutional decision making and administrative accountability needed to mobilize the full potential of university women. Details are provided on: guiding principles of the plan; objectives of the plan; dimensions of the academic environment included in the plan (recruitment, retention, recognition, development, curriculum restructuring, institutional norms, values, and attitudes, institutional decision making, and administrative accountability); and implementing the plan (by the University Commission of Women and unit planning groups).
