Context of Study Congressional request from PL 107-368 Section 18 (b), which stated that the “study shall build on the Academy’s work on gender differences in the careers of doctoral scientists & engineers and examine issues such as faculty hiring, promotion, tenure, and allocation of resources including laboratory space.” National Science Foundation funded the study. Congressional request was the result of hearings on Title IX with respect to mathematics, science, and engineering education held by Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR), then chair of the Subcommittee on Science, Technology and Space.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
