Lynne Welch has compiled 26 provocative essays representing the latest research findings on the topic of women in higher education. This volume addresses issues which are particularly current and timely, including equity issues, mentoring, career mobility, challenges specific to various disciplines, support systems, division of labor in two-career households, communication styles, women administrators, and the minority woman. This volume is directed to men and women in higher education who are interested in the changes and challenges facing women in this field.

Women in Higher Education is a collection of 26 essays grouped under six topic areas. The first, Women in Higher Education, includes essays on support systems, choices and aspirations, and compatibility with maternity. Women in Their Discipline is comprised of six essays on challenges specific to the fields of Theology, Dance, Engineering, Nursing, and Women's Studies.
