ABSTRACT

The particular contribution of institutional type (as defined by Carnegie classification) private or public status, and region of the country for hiring, tenure, retention, and advancement of women faculty in science and engineering serve as the focus of this study. Analysis of data from 173 institutions reveals that doctoral extensive institutions have a significant impact on the number of women faculty hired, tenured, and retained in science and engineering. Private institutions differ significantly from public institutions on all variables. Overall, region and urban/rural location appear to have no significant impact on gender differences for any of the variables.
