Reports of the Analysis of Equity for FAS Faculty
Background on Gender Equity Studies
In Fall, 2000, the FAS Policy and Planning Advisory Committee charged a sub-committee comprised of representatives from P&P and the Women's Faculty Caucus to examine the issue of gender equity for Arts & Science faculty. The members of that sub-committee did an enormous amount of work on this important issue. In addition to piloting a study by an external consultant, the work of this sub-committee resulted in the development of a faculty database that allows FAS Institutional Research to track important indicators such as hiring, promotion, and salaries. After the initial report was submitted in 2002, the Policy and Planning Advisory Committee recommended that every two or three years a new study be mounted to look at gender equity issues. As such, the 2007 and 2005 gender equity studies included updated analyses of the 2002 data.
An additional study was commissioned by the sub-committee in Academic Year 2011-2012 to measure the quality of institutional and professional worklife of the Arts & Science faculty. The findings of the study reflect that faculty generally felt more positive about matters under the control of the individual or the department than matters under the control of the University.
Full results of all studies are available below.
