The Commission on the Status of Women consists of approximately 20 faculty, staff, and student members appointed by the Chancellor and charged with the duty of studying the status of women faculty, staff, and students. The Commission keeps the Chancellor apprised and makes recommendations.

History

In 1978 Chancellor Porter L. Fortune appointed a committee of faculty, staff, and students to determine what should be done to better the situation for women at The University of Mississippi. The committee recommended two courses of action. One was to provide credit courses, research opportunities, programs, and services for women through the Sarah Isom Center, and the other was to establish the Commission on the Status of Women to focus on such affirmative action issues as sex-based salary inequities, staff classifications, childcare facilities, and the appointment of women to upper-level administrative positions.
