Summary

This study investigated the role of women in the administration of state universities and land-grant colleges. Findings and conclusions were based on 146 usable responses from chief officers of multi-campus institutions and 101 responses from women in top-level administrative positions. Results of the questionnaire indicated: (1) There is a relationship between the position of women in top-level administration and the birthplace of their fathers, the occupation of their mothers, whether or not they have children, the provision for child care, the number of years devoted to childbearing, what they thought helped them gain their positions, to whom they were directly responsible, and their reasons for working. (2) There is a relationship between the academic rank of women in top-level administration and their ages, the type of institutions attended at the master's and doctoral level, the reception of financial aid at the master's level, the number of positions held, the number of states in which worked, what they thought helped them gain their positions, for what they were responsible, and their reasons for working. (3) There is a relationship between the salary of women in top-level administration and the geographical regions of employment and birth, the occupation of their fathers, the education of their mothers, the type of institution attended at the master's and doctoral level, the holding of a doctoral degree, what they thought helped them gain their positions, to whom they were directly responsible, for what they were responsible, whether they carried out policy or transmitted decisions, and the availability of tenure as administrators.
