A Study of the Status of Women Senior Administrators within the North Carolina Community College System.
Lesslie, James W.
This study examines factors affecting the advancement of women senior administrators in the North Carolina Community College System (NCCCS) and determines if women have made progress in attaining senior-level positions since the last study, conducted 15 years ago. Fifteen women senior administrators were selected from colleges within the NCCCS and interviewed. Findings indicate that although more women are obtaining senior-level administrative positions, most of their gains continue to be in lower-level positions. President and vice president are the least likely college positions to be occupied by women. In addition, demographic data for the past 10 years revealed that women still have not achieved salary equity with men in similar positions. The study discusses respondents' views of the Comprehensive Plan for Administrative Leadership Through Diversity Enhancement (the Plan), adopted in 1993 to provide a climate that would enhance advancement opportunities for minorities and women. Respondents reported that the Plan has not been an effective mechanism in assisting women to achieve senior administrative positions. At the time of this study (1995), most community colleges in North Carolina had not adopted the Plan but had developed diversity programs of their own. Appended are sample interview questions, a map of NCCCS institution locations and addresses, and data tables regarding senior administrative positions. Contains more than 70 references. (AS)
