AAUP Faculty Gender Equity Indicators, 2006
West, Martha S.; Curtis, John W.
American Association of University Professors
This report provides data on four measures of gender equity for faculty at over 1,400 colleges and universities. The four indicators compared in the report for men and women faculty are employment status (full- and part-time); tenure status for full-time faculty; promotion to full professor rank; and average salary for full-time faculty. The report consists of three sections: an article on "Organizing around Gender Equity"; aggregate national tables for each of the four equity indicators by type of institution; and five appendixes listing the four indicators for each individual college and university by: (1) Doctoral universities; (2) Master's degree universities; (3) Baccalaureate colleges; (4) Associate degree colleges with faculty rank; and (5) Associate degree colleges with no faculty ranks. Data for the report are drawn primarily from the AAUP Faculty Compensation Survey, with additional data on part-time faculty from the U.S. Department of Education. (Contains 18 endnotes, 6 figures, and 9 tables.)
