The National Science Foundation has issued the 2013 update to: Women, Minorities, and Persons with Disabilities in Science and Engineering which provides statistical information about the participation of women, minorities, and persons with disabilities in science and engineering education and employment.

A formal report, now in the form of a digest, is issued every 2 years. Lehigh ADVANCE uses the data, especially about the percentage of PhDs awarded to women or minorities in understanding our institutional transformation. Calculate the percentage of PhDs awarded to women by using Table 7-2 and Table 7-1.  Contact Lehigh ADVANCE if you'd like more information about how to analyze, interpret or apply these findings to your role on campus.
