Bernice Resnick Sandler was born in 1928 in New York City to Ivy Ernst and Abraham Hyman Resnick. She studied psychology at Brooklyn College (B.A. 1948) and the City College of New York (M.A. 1950). She earned a doctorate in counseling at the University of Maryland (Ed.D. 1969). After receiving her doctorate, Sandler found it hard to find work, and began a career-long endeavor to ensure equal access to educational employment for women. Under the auspices of the Women's Equity Action League (WEAL)'s Committee for Federal Contract Compliance, she filed administrative complaints against over 250 colleges and universities under the U.S. Department of Labor, charging the department's Office of Federal Contract Compliance with failing to enforce federal contract compliance at colleges and universities. The publicity which Sandler generated through these complaints contributed to Congressional hearings on the topic of women in education, and led Representative Edith Green to author the leigslation which eventually became Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.
Sandler was director of the Project on the Status and Education of Women (PSEW) of the Association of American Colleges from 1971 to 1991. She has worked with the Center for Women Policy Studies, the National Association for Women in Education, and the Women's Research and Education Institute. She pioneered research into campus sexual harassment, gang rape, and a "chilly climate" for women on campus. She was an active member of the Women's Equity Action League and the Weal Fund in the 1970s, and from 1975 to 1982 was a member of the National Advisory Council on Women's Educational Programs.
