Abstract

The Academic Women's Equity Coalition worked to identify, investigate and seek solutions related to issues of equity at South Dakota State University, provided opportunity for the exchange of information and ideas related to academic women's issues, and served as support and action group for faculty women. This collection is composed of clippings, membership and committee lists, correspondence, meeting agenda, programs, finances and a brief history of the coalition.

Historical Note

The Academic Women's Equity Coalition began in 1983-84, developing out of informal discussions on equity issues among some women faculty members at South Dakota State University. Membership was open to all female faculty members at South Dakota State University and other persons, male or female, who supported the purposes of the Academic Women's Equity Coalition. The purposes of the coalition included working to identify, investigate and seek solutions related to issues of equity at South Dakota State University; to providing opportunity for the exchange of information and ideas related to academic women's issues; and to serving as support and action group for faculty women. The coalition's area of activity included the promotion of non-sexist language, equality in hiring practices, salaries and promotions and tenure, and encouraging women to move into administrative positions at South Dakota State University.
