For nearly four decades, PSEW has provided support to women faculty, administrators, and students in higher education through its programs and publications. PSEW's current priorities include improving curricula and campus climates, promoting women's leadership, and disseminating new research on women and gender. Many PSEW networks, publications, and resources are available to anyone interested in the status of women in higher education, regardless of AAC&U membership status.

Reports & Resources
On Campus with Women (OCWW), sponsored by AAC&U's Program on the Status and Education of Women, provides readers with the most up-to-date information on women in higher education. It focuses on women's leadership, the campus climate, curriculum and pedagogy, and new research and data on women.
A Measure of Equity presents a comprehensive overview of data on women’s status in higher education. It documents areas of progress and identifies needed action to move even further down the path toward equity for women in higher education. The research examines women’s access to college, areas of study in undergraduate and post-graduate work, and women’s status as faculty, administrators, and college presidents.
These papers explore what it means to be a woman and a minority in academe, describing the unique problems and biases these women face. Each paper also recommends resources to help institutions be more supportive.
The Program on the Status and Education of Women invites you to read the new issue of On Campus with Women, on higher education and the gender pay gap. Read more at www.aacu.org/ocww.
