Abstract

[Late one evening in 1974, Emily Taylor’s phone rang at home. When she placed the receiver to her ear, she heard a familiar voice say, “Emily, how would you like to come and be my new boss?” It was Donna Shavlik calling from her desk at the American Council on Education (ACE) in Washington DC. The directorship of the Office of Women in Higher Education (OWHE) had unexpectedly opened, and Shavlik, the assistant director, wanted Taylor—her former boss and mentor—to apply for the job. The ACE Board of Directors established OWHE in 1973 to provide its members—presidents of the nation’s universities and colleges—with guidance on identifying women who might become college and university presidents, and with assistance in complying with Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Title IX of the Higher Education Amendments of 1972.]
