The California Institute of Technology (Caltech) hopes to more than double the number of women faculty members over the next decade to help rectify a glaring gender disparity at the elite science- and technology-oriented school. Reaching the goal would mean adding a net of four women faculty members a year, as women currently make up a mere 31 of Caltech's 284 faculty members. The target is included in a new report that examined the status of women faculty members at the university.
