Gender Equity in STEM

Close examination of the status of women science and engineering faculty at four-year colleges and universities reveals that women not only remain disproportionately underrepresented in STEM disciplines, such as engineering and physics, but also are precipitously lost through transitions to upper professorial ranks in all STEM disciplines, generally. This issue explores current trends in higher education related to recruiting, retaining and advancing STEM women and women of color faculty.
