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 "chilly" classroom climate, dual career recruitment and retention, and employee relations and representation. Among specific recommendations are the following: (1) study the classroom climate for women at Pennsylvania State University (PSU) and commit institutional resources, as necessary, to improve it; (2) implement strategies that will improve PSU's ability to attract and retain dual career couples; and (3) review the current personnel representative system and make necessary changes to increase its effectiveness and to facilitate the dissemination of personnel information. For each recommendation there is a discussion of the problem and its background and the rationale for the recommendation. Twenty-eight references are listed. Various forms, a faculty leaving questionnaire, data files, and an employer listing are appended. (DB)
