Biographical note

Nan E. McGehee was the Associate Chancellor and Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of Illinois at Chicago Circle during the 1960s and 1970s. McGehee served on a number of committees, including chairing a search committee for the Dean of the College of Urban Science and chairing the committee to reconstitute the Faculty Senate. McGehee also served as the campus Equal Employment Opportunity officer, a position she held for almost her entire career at UICC. As EEO officer, McGehee fielded race and sex discrimination complaints and assisted with the development and implementation of affirmative action policies for the University. During the 1970s, University officials sought to bring the campus into compliance with equal protection laws, such as Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. Accordingly, McGehee and her colleagues formed numerous policy committees to discuss ways to reduce discrimination and to foster ethnic and racial diversity and gender equality at the University, with a particular emphasis on the recruitment and retention of minority students and faculty.
