Goldwasser, Molly M.; Hubbard, Marvin E. – Forum on Public Policy Online, 2019
Student populations at institutions of higher education are increasingly diverse. To maximize students' feelings of inclusivity and belongingness within heterogeneous communities -- both of which have been linked with greater educational outcomes -- it is imperative for faculty to create and maintain inclusive classroom spaces. The aim of this…

Vincente, Erin – Forum on Public Policy Online, 2018
Both internal and external factors have incited higher education institutions to reevaluate and restructure antiquated policies and practices that influence contingent faculty support systems and contingent faculty interpersonal relationships with their institutional community members. Current literature and research has yet to truly explore what…

Martin, Jennifer L.; Beese, Jane A. – Forum on Public Policy Online, 2018
As more and more women are being employed as faculty in institutions of higher education, tenure track positions are declining and most of the positions women find themselves in are clinical non-tenure track or part-time adjunct positions. With less traditional academic positions available and more women in the field the result is increased…

Brown, Jami; Casolari, Amber – Forum on Public Policy Online, 2015
The gender wage gap in the United States is a well-documented social and economic phenomenon. The Equal Pay Act of 1963 has done little to bring parity between men's and women's wages. Existing data show a relationship between race, age, geography, immigration, education, and women's pay status. This study analyzes wage disparity within higher…

Monopoli, Paula A. – Forum on Public Policy Online, 2014
Status in the legal academy can mean two things. The first is one's rank, with the highest status being a tenured, full professor. The second is the prestige of one's home institution in the law school rankings. Women have been graduating from law schools in significant numbers for more than thirty years. However, they continue to be…

Roach, Bonnie L. – Forum on Public Policy Online, 2014
There is ample evidence that there still is a pay gap amongst men and women and the situation is no different if academia. Many studies have examined various types of gender discrimination in academia and two areas in particular are problematic--salaries and representation of female faculty in upper ranks of academia. This paper examines the past…

Berheide, Catherine White; Christenson, Lisa; Linden, Rena; Bray, Una – Forum on Public Policy Online, 2013
In colleges and universities throughout the United States, women are underrepresented at the rank of full professor. This national pattern holds true at two highly selective small private liberal arts colleges in the Northeast, one formerly a men's college and the other formerly a women's college. Analysis of personnel data at the former women's…

Robbins, Wendy J. – Forum on Public Policy Online, 2012
Women are "starkly underrepresented" as researchers worldwide ("The World's Women 2010," 68). In Canada, for example, men hold over three-quarters of full professorships and top research positions. Dozens of interconnected factors restrain women's research careers. These include "upstream" factors, such as gender,…

Abrahamson, Craig E. – Forum on Public Policy Online, 2011
This paper focuses on the premise that within the instruction process of higher education, the classroom context needs to create an atmosphere of motivational learning that is founded in part on a relationship between the students and professor that is formatted on the concept of mutual sharing of personal experiences, values, beliefs, and…

Schneider, Beth Z.; Carden, William; Francisco, Alyson; Jones, Thomas O., Jr. – Forum on Public Policy Online, 2011
Previous research has examined the phenomenon of women "opting out" of the corporate environment. Much of this research has examined both "pull" factors--those of home and family life, and "push" factors--those within the organization which create a competitive environment where women feel they cannot achieve the same measure of success as their…

Clark, Catherine D.; Hill, Janeen M. – Forum on Public Policy Online, 2010
Most women entering tenure-track positions in the sciences do so in their late twenties or early thirties after completing a graduate degree and post-doctoral training. Tenure-track positions usually span a six or seven year probationary period during which time institutions expect unlimited commitment from the tenure-track candidates to their…

Boyd, Tammy; Cintron, Rosa; Alexander-Snow, Mia – Forum on Public Policy Online, 2010
Much has been written about the trials and tribulations of junior tenure-track faculty; much has also been written about the difficulties faced by women and minority faculty. However, there is very little research about the experiences of minority women faculty who are also tenure-earning, but untenured; what little research does exist tends to…

This study examines the perceptions of female faculty members in higher education to ascertain their views regarding gender bias in the workplace. A questionnaire was used to collect data from the participants regarding their beliefs of the value and productivity of their work, possible disparity in treatment based on gender, constraints put on…

Mandleco, Barbara – Forum on Public Policy Online, 2010
Women are not tenured at the same rate they are receiving PhDs, and less likely to be tenured when compared to their male counterparts. Reasons women have difficulty achieving tenure include not discussing important information about an academic appointment with colleagues, working part time or as adjunct faculty, being involved in "pastoral or…
