This Should Be Happening on More Campuses

If women are going to make up nearly 60 percent of the undergraduate body, why are female professors and deans still in the minority? My assumption all along has been that the gender shift will take place. Replacement takes time. In some colleges, such as the University of Richmond, that shift has already taken place.

Interesting that this is one of the colleges identified by U.S. News as favoring men in the admissions process, an attempt to keep campus gender balances in check.
