    Gender Equity Report

    Women's Issues Committee

    In the spring of 2008, the Chancellor and the Provost authorized and funded the Gender Equity Report. Faculty members from the Women's Issues Committee collaborated with representatives from university administration and the Office of Institutional Research to form the Gender Equity Task Force in order to complete this report. The goal of the project is to initiate improved gender equity for students, staff, faculty, and administrators across campus.
