Women Are Making Slow Progress as College and University Presidents

The American Council on Education has released the seventh in its series of reports on the presidents of American colleges and universities. The latest report shows that in 2011 women made up 26.4 percent of all college presidents. This is up from 23 percent in 2006.

If this exact rate of progress were to continue on a straight line projection into the future, it would take 35 years for women to reach parity with men in college president positions.
