Availability Pools as the Basis for Affirmative Action.
Sells, Lucy W.
This paper argues that Affirmative Action requires both greater use of persons in the existing pool of qualified persons in the context of hiring for university faculty positions, and long range action to increase the number of women and minorities in that pool. First, it will indicate doctoral production. Second, it demonstrates that, at least for women, the already available pool is not being adequately used. Third, it will show that certain persons have, until very recently, been systematically filtered out of the pool. Fourth, it concludes by suggesting that really effective affirmative action requires an educational process aimed at three target groups: those who do the hiring, those who seek access to the pool of doctorates, and those who have traditionally contributed to the filtering process which has kept women and minorities out of the pool.
