Program on the Status and Education of Women (PSEW)

Archived web site of www.aacu.org/psew/

 

The Project on the Status and Education of Women (PSEW) was formed under the auspices of the Association of American Colleges in 1971. At its inception, PSEW was the first national project concerned with achieving equity for women students, faculty, and administrators in colleges and universities. Bernice Resnick Sandler was Director of PSEW from 1971 to 1991. PSEW served as an information clearinghouse and distributor, a lobbying organization, a research institute, and a speakers and advisory bureau. PSEW disseminated original and reprinted materials addressing the needs of women as students, staff, faculty, and administrators in education. PSEW staff worked in conjunction with Congressional staff and other interested organizations and coalitions on the development and passage of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, mandating that educational institutions that received federal funding could not discriminate on the basis of sex. PSEW staff wrote the first national reports on discrimination against women in collegiate sports, classroom "chilly climate," campus gang rape, students sexually harassed by faculty, and student peer sexual harassment.
