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: special populations, sexual harassment in the workplace, sexual violence against women, women's athletics, and health services for women students. Among specific recommendations are the following: (1) create a university-wide Strategic Study Group on the Status of People of Color, with a charge to look closely at the special concerns of women of color; (2) institute a university-wide policy of nondiscrimination based on sexual orientation; (3) develop new services and expand existing ones to better meet the needs of returning adult female students; (4) revitalize the university's commitment to eradicating sexual harassment of employees; and (5) improve personal safety for women at all campus locations by such actions as improving lighting and escort services; (6) implement strategies to ensure an equitable women's sports program; and (7) increase awareness and quality of health services for women. For each recommendation there is usually a discussion of the problem, the rationale for the recommendation, and references, with a total of 59 references. Appended are a summary of related studies at other universities and a listing of women's varsity sports records. (DB)
