A project was conducted to identify the nature and extent of sex role stereotyping in the Williamsport Area Community College. Using examination methods which could be replicated by other institutions, the project documented instances of sex role stereotyping in college procedures and materials which can affect students' career and educational options. The study was guided by the following objectives: conduct an institutional self-assessment to determine to what extent the college contributes to sex stereotyping in counseling and institutional activities; assess counseling, instructional, and career-related materials used by the college to determine the extent that material contributes to sex stereotyping; and conduct inservice seminars for instructional and counseling personnel on various aspects of sexism and ways to reduce or eliminate real or artificial barriers. Project activities included the following: compiled background information on sex stereotyping and bias in vocational education and the labor market; developed, administered, and analyzed results of an attitudinal survey administered to students and faculty on sex stereotyped beliefs; and reviewed each academic division to determine if any program or activity included factors which contribute to sex role stereotyping. (In this report, project recommendations are presented in the areas of recruitment and admissions, special courses and programs, staff and student development, career development and placement, facilities, support for nontraditional students, and administrative procedures) (BM)
