The Strategic Study Group on the Status of Women: Report to the President and the Commission for Women--Recommendation Package #2.
Pennsylvania State Univ., University Park.
The document presents partial recommendations of a Pennsylvania State University Study Group on the Status of Women at the University. Recommendations concern family-responsive and flexible employee benefits, clerical advancement and development, retention and advancement of women faculty, and sexual harassment of students. Among specific recommendations are the following: (1) enrich the current benefits plan by adding "family-responsive benefits" to better meet the needs of female employees; (2) provide more opportunities for clerical development through in-service and credit courses; (3) increase the number of women in senior faculty positions by improving the retention of well-qualified women; and (4) create a more visible and more effective system of institutional accountability for students experiencing sexual harassment. For each recommendation there is a discussion of the problem and its background, the rationale for the recommendation, and references, with a total of 21 references. An appended 1983 paper by Michael Johnson and Susan Shuman provides additional documentation on sexual harassment of students at Pennsylvania State University and six references. (DB)
