Black Share of Non-Faculty Jobs Down at Most State Universities--Up at Kentucky State.
Kentucky Commission on Human Rights, Louisville.
Blacks' share of non-faculty jobs in Kentucky institutions of higher education is examined in this second in a two-part series on employment in the state university system. The first report in this series was entitled "State University Faculties Stuck on Tokenism in Kentucky." Sections examine: tokenism in non-faculty jobs at state universities; blacks in executive jobs; blacks in technical and professional jobs; black percentage decline at white universities; high-paying jobs and faculty tokenism; women in the job market; and the effort of instltutions to improve their employment policies for blacks. Tables provide information on numbers and percentages of blacks hired in various positions and employment figures on females hired in various positions. Appendices cover employees, by sex, race/ethnicity (1975 and 1977); and new hirees for 1977 for the following positions: executive, administrative and managerial; professional non-faculty; technical and paraprofessional; secretarial and clerical; skilled craft; service and maintenance. Among the many conclusions drawn are the following: employment data show remnants of the dual system of higher education once legally sanctioned in Kentucky; Kentucky State employed 68 of the 143 black faculty in the state university system; and blacks at the predominantly white institutions suffered a 0.6 percent drop in their share of jobs from 1975 to 1977.
