Chancellor's Committee
on the Status of Women

Background

 

The advent of a new millennium notwithstanding, the status of women in American society and its institutions continues to be a matter requiring considerable attention.  To address these multifaceted concerns and issues, in 1971 the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign established the Chancellor's Committee on the Status of Women.  Charged with identifying campus issues affecting women and recommending needed actions directly to the Chancellor, the Committee has addressed such issues as health and safety concerns, undergraduate and graduate educational opportunities and goals, sexual harassment, child care, and policies, climate and procedures relative to gender discrimination in employment, promotion and career advancement of women.  In the Fall of 1999 the Committee produced a Status of Women Faculty at UIUC report which examines the professional climate and employment situation facing women faculty at Urbana-Champaign.  The Committee will be engaged in a similar study for academic professionals, staff and students in subsequent years.
