Administrative History

The Commission on the Status of Women was created in November 1971. President N. Edd Miller charged the Commission to determine the status of the university and investigate grievances of discrimination of women as discovered or reported. Five subcommittees were appointed: Child Care Facility, Study of Attitudes, Dissemination of Information, Public Hearings, and Study of Academic Personnel. The Commission worked with the University’s Human Relations Commission and other campus units. Mary Ellen Glass and other faculty served on the Commission.
