New ACE Report Looks at the Status of Women in Higher Education - American Council on Education

​A new infobrief by ACE's Center for Policy Research and Strategy updates key statistics about women in higher education, examining issues like tenure, compensation and representation in high-ranking leadership positions, such as the presidency and membership on governing boards. The data indicate women are moving through the pipeline and being prepared for leadership positions at a greater rate than men, with female students having earned half or more of all baccalaureate degrees for the past three decades and half of all doctoral degrees for almost a decade. However, the report found that despite the number of female graduates available for leadership positions, women do not hold associate professor or full professor positions at the same rate as their male peers. The infobrief also found a persistent pay gap, with men outearning women by $13,616 at public institutions and $17,843 at private institutions. http://www.acenet.edu/news-room/Pages/New-Report-Looks-at-the-Status-of-Women-in-Higher-Education.aspx
