Since 1996 when I began teaching in the graduate composition program at 
Mills College I have been alarmed at the ratio of male to female 
candidates in composition and technology. My seminars typically have 
eleven men and two women. The majority of graduates in Music at Mills are 
men and this is a women's college. It is difficult for me to understand 
why women are not applying in greater numbers to this program. I would 
appreciate feedback and suggestions on this situation and I would love to 
see more women in composition and technology here at Mills.

Please pass this announcement along to those that might be interested.

Thank you,
Pauline Oliveros
Darius Milhaud Professor
