The target population consists of 28 female graduate students enrolled in the spring 2021 semester at Rowan University. The objective of this study is to assess the knowledge about the gender gap and female involvement within the graduate programs at Rowan University, a public research university located in Glassboro, New Jersey. The literature review for the study examines the current research on a woman's place within the realm of higher education. It also discusses the background of women's education and the types of leadership roles they attain. The findings of this study will provide a detailed overview of the survey results and how they relate to our research questions. The conclusion of this quantitative research study will allow the reader to determine their own thoughts based on our findings.
