The Administrator and Affirmative Action.
Hogges, Ralph
Current experiences and practices that exist in some colleges and universities that violate the Civil Rights Act and affirmative action legislation are discussed. Treatment of the average black, other minority, and women candidates as compared to the average white candidate is questioned in regard to staff recruitment, assignment to line as opposed to staff positions, salary levels, staff-supervisor relationship, peer relationship, cooperation of subordinates, advancement potential, and self-actualization. It is contended that token recruitment efforts have been made in an effort seemingly to comply with affirmative action mandates and that very little, if any, academic or social planning was done to prepare the university community to deal effectively with the admission of minority students. The needs of the black student in white institutions have for the most part not been given adequate attention in such areas as educational planning, financial aid, health, and personal problems. Some noted blacks that have made achievements and contributions that may inspire other blacks are listed. Student services that should be providing sensitive and responsive support to black and other minority students are noted. Teachers in the classroom and academic advising setting need to be aware of deep-rooted attitudes that may affect their treatment of black students. (SW)
