This study investigates the relationship between self-reported health scores with work environment and various components of a women faculty score at a Research 1 University in the Midwest USA. The study examines the differences between male and female faculty responses in the various components making up the women faculty score and also gender differences in self-reported health scores and work environment scores. Differences between STEM and Non-STEM faculty are examined. A significant positive relationship is found between self-reported health scores and work environment controlling for gender. The study finds that the overall university work environment has a stronger relationship to faculty health than adequate gender ratio, women climate, and women leadership, even for women faculty. No significant differences in responses are found between STEM and Non-STEM faculty for women climate, women leadership, health scores, and work environment scores. Significant differences are found only in adequate gender ratio.
