ACE recently updated its infographic brief, Pipelines, Pathways, and Institutional Leadership: An Update on the Status of Women in Higher Education Leadership, which offers key statistics on women in higher education to help promote a dialogue on how to increase the number of women leaders in the field.
The brief includes data illustrating women’s degree attainment in higher education, the percentage of women in tenure faculty positions, the pay gap between men and women at the same faculty rank, and the underrepresentation of women in leadership positions such as presidents, chief academic officers, and governing boards.
As the findings show, male faculty members made an average of $89,190, compared to women faculty members, who made an average of $73,782 during the 2015–16 academic year. Men also are more likely to hold a tenure track position in every academic rank.
The brief also provides next steps from work being done at the University of Denver.
