Introduction to the Initiative on the Status of Women
at UW-Green Bay Part 2

The work team used the results of this survey to assess the current state of affairs pertinent to their charge, to identify needs and to make recommendations for action.

Balancing Work and Personal Life:
The Balancing Work and Personal Life work team, during fall of 2000, surveyed University employees about the quality of their work life on campus. Responses were analyzed by sex and employment category - faculty, academic staff and classified staff. Faculty, academic staff, lecturers, classified staff and others were invited to participate. The employment category of "other" contained employees who serve at the discretion of the Chancellor or Provost, and included many members of the athletics staff. Adjuncts, ad hocs and instructors from Outreach and Extension were not surveyed at this time.

Employees submitted responses online or on paper. The survey was not anonymous, allowing follow-up contact with non-respondents. Several follow-up contacts were made to insure the highest response rate possible. By the end of data collection, 78% of 571 employees responded to the invitation to complete the survey: 71% chose to participate and 7% chose not to participate. The remaining 22% did not respond at all. (Appendix IV)

The work team used the results of this survey to assess the current state of affairs as pertinent to their charge, to identify needs and to make recommendations for action.

Opportunities for Women Students:
The Opportunities for Women Students work team divided into the following sub-groups:

1. Increasing pre-college outreach activities and developing initiatives for women in new technology, increased globalization and other social shifts.

2. Advocating for the development of methods to insure access to higher education for women who are currently excluded due to economic disadvantage or family responsibilities.

3. Opportunities for women students in athletics.

4. Academic issues including content pertinent to women, availability of Women's Studies courses and the development of courses in Gay and Lesbian Studies.

Committee members conducted interviews with administrators, faculty, staff, students and Green Bay Public School guidance counselors. The Committee reviewed available materials in the areas of budgets, enrollments, financial aid, The Campus Diversity Plan 2008, and was greatly aided by materials provided by the campus Office of Institutional Research . The Committee also studied the "Educational Opportunities for Students with Children" report published by the UW-Green Bay Student Government Association in October 2000.

The work team used the gathered information to assess the current state of affairs as pertinent to their charge, to identify needs and to make recommendations for action.
