Affirmative Action Program.
California Univ., San Francisco.
The San Francisco campus of the University of California (UCSF) has as its mission the education of health science professionals. Recruitment areas for campus programs have traditionally been local, state, and national for staff and students, and state, national, and international for faculty. Although efforts have been made over the years to attract more minorities and women into the campus organization, the results were clear that UCSF had had little success in attracting, promoting, or upgrading minorities and women. In 1968, as a direct result of Black Caucus and Black Student Union involvement, two significant changes in campus policy were made: (1) each school and program in health sciences committed itself to a minority student goal of 25% of its entering freshman class, and (2) all hiring activities were centralized in the Personnel Office and its responsibilities in this area were increased. The Campus formally initiated its Affirmative Action program by a policy statement accompanied by guidelines to assist campus departments in setting goals. Included in this document is the Affirmative Action program for UCSF, including sections covering responsibility for implementation, underutilization, goals, program progress, and definitions. Ethnic and sex summary tables are included. The appendices include grievance procedures for discrimination, guide to minority-owned businesses in the San Francisco bay area, summary of ethnic and sex employment, and search process report.
