Slide 9: the 2001 climate survey at rice university: a summary

Number of responses by rank and gender
Rank Men Women Total
Assistant Professor 30 25 55
Associate Professor 24 21 45
Full Professor 89 15 104
Total 143 61 204

The full roster of 466 faculty members – current as of spring 2003 – was surveyed. Approximately 204 faculty members responded, for a response rate of 46%.

Men and women responded to the survey almost in proportion to their representation on the faculty:

  • ~ 24% of faculty were women
  • ~ 29% of respondents were women

Slide 10: the 2001 climate survey at rice university: conclusions

  • On many of the “objective” measures (i.e., salary, start-up), no gender differences emerge.
  • There are significant differences between how male and female faculty members perceive Rice, the quality of Rice as a workplace, and their level of satisfaction with Rice.
  • In almost every category, female faculty members are less satisfied with their Rice work experience, and have higher levels of active dissatisfaction.
  • The differences are not enormous, but they are clearly systematic and significant.

Slide 18: important questions to consider

  • How do we get more women into the STEM recruitment pool?
    • How do we increase our acceptance rates?
    • How will we know when we have done a “good job”?
  • Why do the climate differences exist?
    • Is this a general phenomenon or is it something particular about Rice University?
    • What can we do to reduce these differences and increase the positive climate that women experience? Will we see changes in our next survey (scheduled for next year)?

Slide 19: ongoing research and initiatives

  • Mini-Grant Competition
    • Margaret Beier, Assistant Professor of Psychology, Predictors of Majoring in Science and Engineering
    • Dan Beal, Assistant Professor of Psychology, Explaining Gender Differences in High Stake Tests
  • Ongoing Projects Receiving modest ADVANCE funds ($400)
    • Juan Madera, Randi Martin, and Mikki Hebl, Psychology, Gender Differences in Letters of Recommendation
  • Upcoming Projects that are Currently Being Designed
    • Hebl lab: Explaining Departures from Rice University: A Gender Analysis
    • Hebl lab: Why People Accept or Reject STEM Offers

Slide 20: conclusions

  • STEM women are increasing.
  • Stark differences on the Climate Survey were not apparent - objective measures often failed to show differences although subjective measures often showed women reporting lower qualititative experiences.
  • How STEM is doing differs depending on the comparison group that we use as well as the specific department.
  • ADVANCE may already be showing some impact.
  • There are some significant objective disparities.
    • Salary disparities have diminished substantially in recent years, but there remains work to be done and vigilance to be maintained.
    • We have a lot of work to do to bring the raw numerical gender balance of our faculty to a satisfactory level. While our situation is not atypical, nor is it acceptable.
      • We confront even larger and more problematic imbalances in other dimensions – ethnicity and race – which were not the specific target of this study.
    • We have cultural and work-environment issues on the campus that need to be confronted
      • The fact that they are subliminal makes it harder.

I think if critical temperature denote high temperature then a liquid stats boils that time the water stats to evaporate so some moles of h2o to up and due to high temp the bonding break they have low density so it can be a reason
