“Women are significantly underrepresented among higher education presidents. Today, only 26% of the college presidents in the U.S. are women while more than 57% of the students in colleges and universities are women.” Why So Few Women College Presidents?, by Lucie Lapovsky, Forbes, April 13, 2014
“A recent study of top female college and university leaders finds that although there are lots of glimmers of optimism, female higher education administrators still face subtle barriers such as being held to different expectations than male counterparts, some lack of support, discouragement and sometimes sabotage.” Study: Female Leaders in Higher Ed Face Different Expectations than Males, by Lekan Oguntoyinbo, Diverse, April 27, 2014
