Affirmative Action Programs in the California Community Colleges, 1990-91: An Annual Report to the Board of Governors and the Legislature.
Sheehan, Maria
Through Assembly Bill (AB) 1725, the California State Legislature provided two goals for staff diversity in the state's community colleges. The near-term goal was to achieve a 30% systemwide hiring rate of ethnic minorities during the 1992-93 fiscal year, and the long-term goal was to have a workforce in the community colleges that mirrored the demographic characteristics of the state's population by the year 2005. Figures on systemwide hires during the period between fall 1988 and fall 1990 indicate that: (1) of the 365 1988-89 and 326 1989-90 executive/administrative/managerial hires, 108 (29.6%) and 90 (27.6%) respectively were minorities; (2) of the 1,262 1988-89 and 1,228 1989-90 faculty hires, 337 (26.7%) and 381 (28.4%) were minorities; (3) of the 138 1989-90 and 124 1989-90 non-faculty professional hires, 54 (39.1%) and 42 (33.8%) were minorities; (4) of the 1,277 1988-89 and 1,312 1989-90 secretarial/clerical hires, 455 (35.6%) and 467 (35.5%) were minorities; (5) of the 113 1988-89 and 88 1989-90 skilled crafts hires, 34 (30.1%) and 29 (32.9%) were minorities; and (6) of the 579 1988-89 and 565 1989-90 service/maintenance hires, 301 (52%) and 301 (53.2%) were minorities. From 1984 through 1990, the participation rate of women in faculties increased by 4.3%, while the number of women faculty increased by 19.8%. The participation rate of white employees for the same period decreased by 3.2%, with the number of white faculty increasing by 2.7%. The total number of faculty grew by 6.7% during the period, with 72.4% of these positions being filled by ethnic minorities. (JMC)
