Notes:

a Means weighted by gender, enrollment status, and institutional size, then scaled (Mean of Top 10% = 100).

b * p<.05, **p<.01, *** p<.001 (2-tailed).

Effect size is Cohen’s d, the standardized difference between the institution’s mean and the comparison group’s mean, calculated by dividing the mean difference by the pooled standard deviation.

AU scores based on 1,829 responses (39% response rate), with a sampling error of 2.0%.
