There is very little support for family life beyond the regular flexibility of an academic teaching schedule.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Goal posts constantly change which makes family planning and management difficult to say the least.

It is mothers who are not treated well and are perceived as pulling less than their weight.

Lady InfoProfessor

University of Maryland

Assistant Professor, College of Information Studies

January 1970

A large number of women overall, and an unusual number of working moms on the faculty makes for a relatively supportive environment for women within academia. One caveat: there are fewer women faculty members, and in particular working moms, among the senior faculty. But there is hope for this to change within the next few years (e.g. a large number of women who should receive tenure in the next 3 or so years).

The college is small and the "good old boy" network is strong. Not a bad place, but there are very limited opportunities.

Assistant Professor, Elementary & Early Childhood Education

I have had an excellent experience working here at TCNJ due mostly to excellent mentor-ship, flexible leadership, and a department willing to work with my constraints. Someone in a similar position in a different department might not have the same experience.

Lady Shady

University of Dubuque

Assistant Professor, Faculty

January 1970

This organization has one of the most dysfunction human relations departments I've ever encountered. Because of an administrative / faculty rift close to 20 years ago, there is still a deep distrust of faculty/staff and it plays out in policies like maternity leave. Getting answers on HR policies is next to impossible. We haven't had a published faculty handbook in years. The majority of our faculty are grossly underpaid adjuncts with zero benefits. Run, don't walk, away from this institution.

Academia is quite nice to women on maternity leave. The standards of performance is quite meritocratic as outcomes are observable. Academia is a great place for women except for the most competitive top.
