Title

Article "Female faculty increase linked to recruiting effort"

Description

This 1992 Collegian article states that a report on women and gender issues was released, including 40 recommendations for improvement as the status of the female faculty was examined. The report stated that there was "significant improvement" in the hiring of more female faculty and staff. David Leary, the dean of arts and sciences at the time, said that this improvement was due to an effort made to increase the amount of women in the applicant pool. Emily Mitchell, a junior, expresses her favor of hiring more female faculty as she says the University should be representative of its population and at that point there were more women enrolled. Several aspects of the report have been discussed and are attempting to be implemented as a committee with the following subgroups was created; curriculum, teaching, sexual harassment, student life, and the status and recruitment of women faculty.
