520    Gender inequality/inequity in the academy has been 
       evidenced globally as women outnumber men seeking degrees 
       in institutions of higher education, but remain 
       concentrated in the lower faculty ranks and absent from 
       administrative positions, particularly in the science, 
       technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines
       The chapters in this volume document the gender inequality
       in higher education in the United States as well as in 
       Australia, Austria, Portugal, South Africa, and Sweden. 
       They explore the reasons for it and test or suggest 
       remedies. Several are based on projects funded by the U.S.
       National Science Foundation (NSF), which seeks to address 
       the issue as it is evidenced in STEM disciplines through 
       ADVANCE, a program developed to increase the participation
       and advancement of women in these disciplines. The authors
       consider womeĊ„s situation in the context of a variety of 
       types of educational settings including community colleges,
       primarily undergraduate institutions, and research-
       intensive universities
