The Social Science Research Team of Diane Hyland, Jackie Krasas and Wendy Abrantes examines the intersection of gender and mode of scholarship as well as gender and climate factors across 10 private mid-sized research universities. A research survey emphasizing attitudes toward and involvement in collaborative and interdisciplinary research was distributed to all women STEM faculty and the best matched male faculty peer at nine peer institutions (n=843). 298 completed surveys were received (33.4% response rate) from 143 faculty who identified as women and 100 who identified as men. Data from 25 Lehigh women STEM respondents and the 25 best matched Lehigh men respondents were encorporated into this data set. This combined data set of 168 women and 125 men provided sufficient power to test the hypotheses we presented in the proposal. In addition to the two posters presented at the annual gathering of ADVANCE institutions, manuscripts are in preparation which will go into more depth and shed light on how the context of smaller universities may modify gendering of various outcomes dealing with mode of research and work satisfaction.
