- This qualitative study of 26 women full professors representing a variety of academic disciplines and professional fields at a Research I university explores issues of gender identification and women's community. The study found that respondents viewed their principal responsibility as advancement of their respective disciplines and perceived themselves as having less in common experientially and professionally with women faculty members from other disciplines. However, they maintained close, long-standing supportive ties with women colleagues; and in cases where women colleagues in the home department were scarce or absent, they identified with colleagues from other campuses. Sections of the paper discuss such issues as collegiality and community with respect to disciplinary commitment, salience of gender to discipline, the role of personal choice, and "women's communities" in academe. (Contains 30 references.) (RH)
