Career Paths of Women Administrators in the California and North Carolina Community College Systems.
Hawkins, Annette Davis
This study examined which variables influenced the career paths of women administrators in the North Carolina and California community college systems. Results of regression analyses on the 643 respondents (189 from California, 454 from North Carolina) indicate that: (1) there was no significant difference in the odds of desiring to advance for the two groups of women; (2) age increased the odds of desiring to advance by 6.67% for each year after age 25, but the odds began to decrease at age 37; (3) for each increase in advanced degree, the odds of desiring to advance increased 6%; (4) the odds of desiring to advance decreased 1.7% for each year at an administrative level, decreased 1.49% for each year at the institution, and decreased 8.78% for each increase in administrative level; (5) the odds of desiring to advance increased 35% for each level of willingness to move, increased 7% for each campus committee/task force served on, and increased 12.5% for each external committee/task force served on; (6) women who possessed a doctorate or were working on one were 2.29 times more likely to desire to advance than women who were not working on a doctorate or possessed one; and (7) California women desired to advance 1.6 times more than women in North Carolina. (Contains 21 tables, 3 figures, 15 appendices (including the survey instrument), and 261 references.) (KP)
