The Core Student Affirmative Action Program at the California State University. A Second Review.
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
A second review of the core student affirmative action program at the California State University is presented. The review was conducted to assess: (1) progress in implementing the program on each of the campuses; (2) the impact of the expanded outreach efforts; and (3) the success of the program in coordinating existing outreach services, resources, and personnel on each campus. Attention is directed to the quality of outreach staff employed by the state university campuses; the enrollment of minorities from outreach high schools; the amount of campus financial support; and program coordination. Progress data are presented for individual campuses. The following strengths of the program are considered: total institutional involvement in affirmative action; allocation of state money to campuses making the most progress and commitment; annual publication of information about the program; rural outreach efforts; and the use of successful nontraditional outreach strategies. Areas where further progress is needed include: conflict between the core program as a comprehensive concept and as separate services, time consuming and unnecessary annual funding, and inadequate implementation of a comprehensive effort on some campuses.
