The Emerging Presence of Female Faculty in Pennsylvania's State System of Higher Education: An Historical Perspective, 1974-1994.
Keetz, Mary A.
This report presents data and findings from a 5-year follow-up study to an earlier 16-year (1974-1989) longitudinal study of trends in the hiring and promotion of female faculty within the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education. The two studies have produced an information base on full-time faculty in the state system from 1974-75 through 1994-95. After brief sections on the study's purpose, history, and method, tables present detailed findings for: (1) number, percentage, and distribution of full-time total faculty by institution and sex; (2) number, percentage, and distribution of full-time professors, associate professors, assistant professors, and instructors by institution and sex; (3) number, percentage, and distribution of full-time total faculty at the professor rank by institution and sex; (4) number, percentage, and distribution of graduate student full-time equivalent (FTE) enrollment by institution and sex; (5) number, percentage, and distribution of undergraduate FTE enrollment by institution and sex; and (6) ratio of undergraduate student FTE enrollment to full-time total faculty by institution and sex. Discussion of the data notes the continuing lack of gender parity among college faculty and presents a nine-item call for action. Extensive appendices provide further detailed tables for each institution, graphs comparing institutions, and a set of guidelines. (Contains 35 references.) (DB)
