UPDATE: UW has been in touch to let us know that they are actually at 47%. They share with Georgia, Iowa, and Penn State the distinction of having at least twice the national average percentage of women.
Julie Van Camp has updated her list of percentages tenured and tenure track women, and there’s both good news and bad news! First, some congratulations are in order: The University of Georgia has the highest percentage of women in the country, at 53%. And the University of Washington has given us a first: For the very first time since Julie’s been doing this (10 years), a Leiter-ranked department has hit the 50% mark for percentage of women.
Now the bad news: When it comes to Leiter-ranked departments, the percentage remains stuck at around 22-23. (Overall percentage 22.7; average percentage 23.84; median percentage 22.22.)
