Download the Resource Equity report: resourcequity.pdf (PDF)

Case has institutionalized several new initiatives in the last 2 years. The Resource Equity Committee (REC) was created by the Provost in 2000 in response to the MIT Report (1999). The REC was charged to conduct a self-study of resource allocation among Case faculty and the impact of gender on CWRU faculty careers. The REC has completed thematic coding of focus group transcripts and the formal report was released in March, 2003.

In 2001, The President's Advisory Council on Women (PACOW) was created to "serve Case by providing the president with ongoing insights regarding the campus environment as it relates to women in the University community." One of PACOW's first recommendations was the immediate creation of the Flora Stone Mather Center for Women to be a central hub of communication, education, research, and programming on the CWRU campus for women faculty, staff, and students. Other initiatives include the creation of Women in Science and Engineering Roundtable (WISER) in 2001, which links women science and engineering students in a community with other students, women faculty, and postdocs.
