Fact Book on Women in Higher Education.
Touchton, Judith G.; Davis, Lynne
This compendium of information extracted from many sources covers both minority and majority women in higher education in all of their academic roles: faculty, students, administrators, staff, and trustees. Data are presented in narrative form in a section titled "Highlights and Trends." This section features major findings from each of seven topical sections: demographic and economic trends significant to higher education; the transition from high school to college; enrollment; earned degrees; faculty; administrators, trustees, and staff; and student financial aid. Then, for each of these seven sections, data are presented in chart or graph form, combined with observations in narrative form. The final section contains a discussion of data issues, a list of major data sources, a 41-item bibliography, and source tables on which information in the charts and graphs is based.
