Upgrading Minorities: Patterns and Trends 1970 to 1978.
North Carolina State Dept. of Community Colleges, Raleigh.
A progress report prepared by the North Carolina Department of Community Colleges assesses the status of women and minorities by evaluating patterns of participation between 1970 and 1978 in the areas of institutional governance, faculty and staff employment, and student enrollment. Findings indicate that there has been little change in the representation of women or minorities on boards of trustees, on statewide departmental committees, or in department of community colleges positions. White males continue to hold at least 89% of these leadership positions. Women represent 49% of the total institutional workforce in North Carolina community colleges. They hold 14.8% of the executive/managerial jobs, 38.7% of the instructional jobs, and 42.9% of "other professional" jobs. Of new hirings at the executive level, 20% were women; women gained 42% of new instructional openings and 42% of the "other professional" openings. In the area of enrollment, white student enrollment decreased while the percentage of black and women students increased significantly in all programs. The distribution of males and females in various programs remained much the same with males enrolling in agricultural, engineering, and trade programs; females entered the traditional programs of health care, home economics, and office programs. Results of the study are presented in tables, graphs, and charts. (DR)
