About Women on Campus, v1-2 n1-4 1992-93
These eight newsletters for women in higher education administration and teaching published in 1991 and 1992 contain regular features as well as topics special to each issue. Features that appear fairly regularly include brief news bits on students on campus, nonsexist language, working in academe, sexual harassment and sexual assault, women in science and engineering, news from around the world, resources, and job announcements. Individual issues offer lead articles. In the first issue "A New Name, New Programming, and All the News About Women on Campus" announces the newsletter and describes its mission. The second issue leads with "Good News: New Civil Rights Act Benefits Women" which notes effects on women of the 1991 Civil Rights Act. The third issue leads with "The Free Speech Debate" and discusses the "free speech versus harassment" conflict on campuses around the nation. The fourth issue follows up the free speech debate with further news and discussion of the Supreme Court's June 1992 ruling on the issue. The fifth issue highlights federal legislation regarding sexual assault. The sixth issue looks again at sexual assault and litigation and events around the nation. The seventh issue leads with news on women in athletics. The eighth issue addresses Title IX compliance. (JB)
