The Status of Women in Maryland Public Higher Education, 1984-1994.
Maryland State Higher Education Commission, Annapolis.
This report charts progress made by women in public postsecondary Maryland institutions during the decade 1984-94. Data tables and text show: (1) a steady increase in the proportion of full-time faculty women, although men still hold most senior appointments; (2) that community colleges hired a greater percentage of women in 1993-94 than did four-year institutions; (3) an increase in the number of women faculty at four-year institutions in all discipline areas except business; (4) only a small salary gap between male and female community college faculty across all ranks and disciplines, but a continued and widening gap at four-year institutions; (5) an increasing percentage of women executives and managers; (6) little change in representation of women on institutional boards; (7) a significant increase in the total number of women enrolled on Maryland campuses; (8) second-year retention rates for women equaling or exceeding those of men at four-year institutions; (9) six-year graduation rates of women consistently exceeding those of men; (10) four-year graduation and transfer rates for women at community colleges increasing slightly; (11) women earning a majority of associate, Bachelor's and Master's degrees, although they trail men in the number of doctorate and first professional degrees; (12) women continuing to lag men in degree attainment in science.
