Parity 2000: Achieving Equity for Women in Higher Education. Report of the Council for Women in Higher Education.
Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, Austin.
This report addresses the issues of underrepresentation and equity involving women in Texas colleges and universities. These issues include the numbers of women administrators and faculty, salary and compensation differentials, recruitment and retention of women in faculty and administrative ranks, the climate for women in higher education, and methods for measuring outcomes related to these issues and assuring accountability. The first and second sections provide statistics, within the text and appendices, that document the underrepresentation of women in terms of their faculty or administrative rank and salary. The third section addresses the climate for women in Texas higher education, including both the atmosphere in which women work and study and issues related to families and supportive services which would improve the environment for both men and women in higher education. The report's final section develops a set of goals, objectives, and an action plan for achieving parity in higher education faculty, administration, and governing boards. Appendices provide recommendations for collecting supplemental data and developing institutional plans as well as a list of methods and procedures for recruiting, retaining, and promoting women in higher education.
