In recent years there has been an increasing specialization of function in college organization. However, the duties of the position of dean of women are not always adequately defined. There are certain standards and ideals common to all colleges but in each college there exist different needs. It is the purpose of this study (1) to record specific conditions each dean of women in a higher educational institution in New Mexico is meeting on her own campus, (2) to discover the duties more or less similar in all institutions, and (3) finally, in the light of certain standards set down by the Research Committee of the National Association of Deans of Women in 1938, to attempt an evaluation of the work that is being done by the deans of women in the universities and colleges of New Mexico.
