A great university fosters a climate of institutional support and respect for women which permeates all levels and segments of the organization. UK must:

  • Conduct a study of campus climate for women students in all undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs
  • Implement a mechanism to ensure balanced representation and unbiased portrayals of women in all UK publications and communications.
  • Recognize women’s achievements and contributions by the equitable awarding of university honors.
  • Institute a comprehensive educational program for all University personnel on organizational policies against sexism.
