Special Concern for Women
Giving specialized support to the academic needs of women, Georgian Court University promotes and fosters leadership qualities not often found on coeducational campuses, as evidenced by the overwhelming number of leading American women who have graduated from a women's college or university. In addition, our women's residence halls give your daughters the safety, friendship and camaraderie to blossom and learn, thrive and grow.
Women's college graduates account for less than 4% of college-educated women, but 30% of a Business Week list of 50 rising female stars in corporate America and more than 20% of women in Congress.
A 2004 USA TODAY article entitled “Women's college graduates happily living up to their own standards,” stated:
Consider the findings of a yearlong review of Duke University in Durham, NC. Released in September, it details a troubling climate for female students and faculty at the coed campus.
Undergraduate women “feel pressure to wear fashionable (and often impractical) clothes and shoes, to diet and exercise excessively and to hide their intelligence in order to succeed with their male peers,” the report says, adding that many undergraduate women described a need to achieve an ideal of “effortless perfection.”
A number of experts suggest the findings aren't unique to Duke. Studies of faculty at Princeton and MIT, for instance, drew similar conclusions.
The article went on to summarize:
“What women's colleges do … is help women gain a sense of confidence that what they choose ultimately is going to work for them. They have the confidence to try various things,” …
Women face fewer barriers – and distractions – in reaching their goals, whether it is majoring in physics, playing rugby or becoming student body president
