Report on the Representation of Women and Minorities in Texas Public Institutions of Higher Education, 1994-1996.
Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, Austin.
This document presents two sets of data for Texas public institutions of higher learning: (1) the number of women faculty and (2) enrollment of racial and ethnic minority students. Text summaries and data tables for women include: full-time faculty, including tenured and tenure-track; full-time faculty new hires; full-time faculty promotions; executive, administrative, and managerial staff; minority women faculty at public universities and community and technical colleges; presidents and chancellors; and women on governing boards. The report notes that there continues to be a disparity between the number of men and women in full-time tenured positions, both at the university and at the community college level. Student enrollment, retention and degree-awarded data for public colleges and universities and community and technical schools are based on the period fall 1989 to fall 1995; data on faculty and professional staff are also included. It is noted that while the numbers of black and Hispanic students have increased, graduation and retention rates remain less than those for white students. Appended are cover pages of several reports that can be requested from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, and a copy of a minority faculty and administrator registry form. (CH)
