State University Faculties Stuck on Tokenism in Kentucky. Staff Report 79-1.
Statistical data is presented in this report to show that the State supported universities and community colleges of Kentucky had an underrepresentation of blacks among tenured and non-tenured faculty at all universities but Kentucky State in 1977. It is pointed out that there was only slight progress, or no progress at all, at the traditionally white universities toward achieving meaningful levels of black participation between 1975 and 1977. Additional data provided for each of the universities and community colleges in Kentucky illustrate the hiring practices of each with regard to females and other minorities at the faculty level. It is argued that Asians and other minorities have made greater gains proportionately than blacks among the tenured faculty and that the most significant gains for female faculty have been in the Community College System. Recommendations for improving the racial composition and minority representation of Kentucky's higher education faculty are made. (EB)
