The analyses and suggestions of 38 leaders in education, feminism, foundations, law, and government are collected to set contexts for decisions facing colleges and universities concerning those students, faculty members, and administrators who are women. Among the issues are affirmative action, academic programs, accountability, equality, and equity. Most of the authors say it is the conscious and unconscious practices and prejudices of men that hinder women in their endeavors. Impediments to motivation, productivity, and careers, and the cost effectiveness of women professionals are discussed in detail by several experts. Authors include Helen S. Austin, Carolyn Shaw Bell, McGeorge Bundy, K. Patricia Cross, Robben W. Fleming, Patricia Roberts Harris, Roger W. Heyns, Juanita M. Kreps, Martha E. Peterson, Mina Rees, Bernice Sandler, Sheila Tobias, Anne T. Truax, and David B. Truman. (Author/PG)

Todd Furniss discusses the issues motivating demands for black studies.

Lincoln Gordon writes of the difficulties of governance amid conflicting pressures. Thomas H. Eliot describes Washington University's response to demonstrations and demands. "Racial Considerations in Admissions" are documented and analyzed by Alexander Astin. David Brown discusses which investments of financial resources would be most productive in solving the racial crisis. How the university curriculum should respond to larger black enrollments is examined by Amitai Etzioni in a discussion of alternative kinds of academic programs. Finally, Harold Enarson outlines the university's opportunities to improve the quality of urban life in "Higher Education and Community Services." (Js)
