Summing Up Representation Overall, females outnumber males Males are equally represented at each level Females are not equally distributed across the ranks 56% Females 44% Males 43% Asst29% Asst 24% Assc31% Assc 12% Prof32% Prof
Summing Up Compensation Males make more than females at each rank Female assistants make 93% of male assistants Female associates make 97% of male associates Female professors make 94% of male professors Regression lines on the scatter plots predict women make less than men
Salary & Time in Rank Most associates advance before 10 years. Salary compression at associate level for men, but not women. Salary compression not a problem for full professors.
How added compensation is made: Summer Research & Teaching Equal numbers of men and women do summer teaching and research, with women’s compensation equivalent across ranks and men’s increasing with rank.
Distribution of Effort Men teach more than women at assistant and associate ranks, women do more research. This is reversed at the full professor level.
Summing up DOE… DOEs sometimes considered to be fiction Used in promotion and tenure decision making Associate women do more administration than all other groups – does it derail their progress toward promotion to full?
Overall… College of Education has proportionally more women faculty than many other colleges Still women are more likely to be at lower ranks Women make lower salaries than men Some inequities are “made-up” by added compensation for assistant and associate, but not full professors
