Women and Minorities in California Public Postsecondary Education: Their Employment, Classification, and Compensation, 1977-1981.
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
Information is presented on the employment, classification, and compensation of ethnic minorities and women in California public postsecondary institutions in 1977, 1979, and 1981. The report is divided into separate sections for the University of California, the State University, and the California community colleges. Within each section, data is provided on: classification/occupational activity; compensation; full-time faculty by tenure status and rank; and new hires, promotions, and separations. Primary emphasis in the textual discussion is placed on the top three occupational categories of Executive/Administrative/Managerial staff; Faculty; and Professional Non-Faculty. Conclusions about affirmative action for personnel in the three public segments since 1977 include the following: there have been modest increases in the percentages of women and minorities in the faculty and staff of the public institutions; in most employment categories, men are better represented than are women, regardless of ethnic group; and the representation of women and minorities in the tenure-track faculty, as well as in the tenured faculty is discouraging. Appendices include 1982 reports and statistical data from the three segments of postsecondary education; and the text of California Assembly Bill No. 105. (SW)
