The GEP will fund 4 first year and 11 second year associates as part of its 2003-2004 sponsorship program, which begins on June 1, 2003.  This group represents faculty members from five of the eleven eligible science departments and includes women at all ranks.  First year associates include Ines Miyares (Geography), Marnia Lazreg (Sociology), Rupal Oza (Women's Studies/Geography), and Purvi Sevak (Economics).  Returning for a second year in the program are Fatma Cebenoyan (Economics), Margaret Chin (Sociology), Darlene DeFour (Psychology), Jennifer Dwyer (Political Science), Roseanne Flores (Psychology), Hongmian Gong (Geography), Rebecca Huselid (Psychology), Marianna Pavlovskaya (Geography), Randye Rutberg (Geography), Haydee Salmun (Geography), and Pamela Stone (Sociology).

Janice M. Steil, Ph.D., the author of "Marital Equality: Its Relationship to the Well-Being of Husbands and Wives" will present a workshop on marital equality for the GEP Sponsorship Program on March 5, 2003.

The GEP is pleased to announce that Janice M. Steil, a Professor of Psychology at the Derner Institute, Adelphi University, will be speaking to the GEP Sponsorship Program on March 5, 2003.  Dr. Steil is a social psychologist whose teaching and research interests include the psychology of gender; power and intimacy in adult close relationships, particularly marriage; the psychology of justice; and the sense of entitlement.  In recent years, she has conducted several studies investigating the role of social comparisons in the achievement of equality at home and at work.  She is also in the process of examining the expectations of intimacy among engaged couples, and collaborating on a series of studies designed to develop a measure of the sense of entitlement.
