Ten years ago, women accounted for half (50%) of the students enrolled in undergraduate programs. Six in 10 students (61%) at the master’s level were women. In 2004, the percentage of women enrolled in baccalaureate (52%) and master’s (62%) programs increased slightly.
In 1995, less than half of the students enrolled in doctoral (43%) and first-professional (41%) programs were women. After a decade of great progress, women constituted slightly over half of the enrollments in doctoral (52%) and half of the first-professional (50%) programs.
The greatest concentrations of women are enrolled in the Colleges of Nursing (92%) and Social Work (87%), and the lowest concentration is in the College of Engineering (14%).
