Jones, Stephanie J.; Taylor, Colette M. – NASPA Journal About Women in Higher Education, 2012
Researchers have found that, although community colleges continue to remain gendered organizations, their climates and cultures are perceived to be more open to women than are their college and university peers.

Kelly, Bridget Turner; Fetridge, Jessica S. – NASPA Journal About Women in Higher Education, 2012
Women faculty disproportionately leave academia by their second or third semester and experience slow rates of tenure and promotion.

Fellabaum, Jennifer – NASPA Journal About Women in Higher Education, 2011
While many higher education scholars have considered gender (e.g., Dawson-Threat & Huba, 1996; DeLucia-Waack, Gerrity, Taub, & Baldo, 2001; Jacobs, 1995; Knox, Zusman, & Mcneely, 2004; Lackland & De Lisi, 2001; Massey & Christensen, 1990), most of the literature uses modernistic theories to examine gender roles or gendered differences among…

Lester, Jaime – NASPA Journal About Women in Higher Education, 2011
Despite the steady increase of women in faculty positions over the last few decades and the research on gender norms in the academy, what remains unclear is why many female faculty continue to conform to gender norms despite their acknowledgement of the discriminatory nature of these norms, their dissatisfaction performing the norms, and the lack…

Vaccaro, Annemarie – NASPA Journal About Women in Higher Education, 2011
Although Robin Morgan argued that sisterhood is powerful (1970) and forever (2003), results from this case study show that sisterhood is not easily achieved, even in women's groups in which support for women was a formal goal. Narratives of eight women faculty, middle managers, and top administrators reveal that organizational sexism and women's…

Bush, Ruth; Mentzer, Danielle R.; Grisaffi, Danielle; Richter, Julie – NASPA Journal About Women in Higher Education, 2011
Newspaper reports of female college seniors modifying their career plans to opt out of work before they enter the workforce challenge the assumption that because many recent college graduates were raised in dual-income families, they would expect to have a substantial workforce role. Using a questionnaire format, this study examines postgraduation…

Sallee, Margaret W. – NASPA Journal About Women in Higher Education, 2011
The purpose of this article is to introduce gender into models of doctoral student socialization. Although stage models of socialization explain how students acquire the skills to succeed in a discipline, they are content- and identity-neutral. Since stage models address how socialization occurs for all students, they cannot account for the…

The purpose of this qualitative study is to better understand how gender is constructed at a women's college.

Through semi-structured interviews with faculty,…

In 2009, the economics department at Kansas State University began one of the first department-level Women in Economics groups for female graduate students in the United States.
