Oregon State System of Higher Education, Eugene.
This report presents a profile of enrollment, employment, and institutional climate factors by gender in the Oregon State System of Higher Education. The report consists of a written analysis and 40 tables of data on which the analysis is based. Following an introduction which describes the history of the committee that produced the report, the first section of the analysis treats student enrollment by gender including academic preparation and performance, academic choice of major, non-traditional and part-time students, and financial support distribution. The following section discusses the tables that relate to full-time instructional employment. A section on selected administrative positions covers distribution of women in the administration at various levels. Treatment of institutional climate looks at recruitment and retention of faculty and administrative staff, observations of the effect of recent budget cuts on enrollment, and gender-related programs and activities encouraging women to participate in higher education. A conclusion presents key points and critical issues for further consideration at campus and systemwide levels. Appendixes contain a list of programs to promote women's participation in higher education, and a list of departments listed by discipline group. (JB)
