Briefing of New National Academies Report: Gender Differences at Critical Transitions in the Careers of Science, Engineering, and Mathematics Faculty
June 2, 2009 | Keck Center, Washington, DC


It is a Congressionally Mandated Report on Career Differences between Male and Female Faculty in Six Disciplines – biology, chemistry, civil engineering, electrical engineering, mathematics, and physics.

  • The findings are from Survey Data collected in 2004-2005 from Faculty and Departments on Critical Transitions for Tenure–Track and Tenured Faculty including hiring, promotion, tenure and institutional resource allocation.
  • The report provides a Snapshot of the Status of Female Faculty at Top Research Universities and clarifies to what extent male and female faculty have similar experiences and opportunities.
