    Abstract

    Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, has a national reputation as a leader in diversity. During the last two decades of the twentieth century, Rutgers ranked among the top ten public Association of American Universities (AAU) institutions in percentages of women faculty and faculty of color. Rutgers-Newark is routinely ranked by U.S. News and World Report as one of the most diverse campuses in North America in terms of student composition. Moreover, as the home of Douglass College, the only women's college in the United States located within a major public research university, one of the top women's and gender studies departments in the world, and five major research centers and institutes on women, Rutgers University enjoys a reputation for gender diversity that is unparalleled.
