An Affirmative Action Program for Ethnic Minorities. Part I: Present Practices and Procedures of Los Rios District.
Los Rios Community Coll. District, Sacramento, CA.
The components and present status of programs for ethnic minorities at American River, Sacramento City, and Cosumnes River Colleges of the Los Rios Community College District (California) are explained in this Part I of a larger study. The programs aim to enhance minority students' opportunities to succeed in college, provide equal opportunity for them in employment, promotion, and assignment, and increase understanding and sensitivity among various ethnic groups in the college community. Programs to assist minority students involve recruitment, orientation, counseling, financial aid, curriculum, instruction, work experience, student personnel policies and practices, co-curricular activities, research, and funding. Part I discusses the programs' histories, compositions, activities, and evaluations. Programs to assist minority staff members involve recruitment and selection, certification, employment, in-service training, and fair employment practices. Policy, procedures, and positions are discussed. Community services include on- and off-campus classes and workshops, speakers, cooperative activities, public information, and community advisory committees. They are provided for the community as a whole or for a specialized segment, depending on the program. Five local colleges cooperate in the resolution of common problems such as funding and research. Part II will be on evaluation and plans for expansion; Part III, on continuing efforts to implement a sound program for ethnic minorities. (CA)
