Barraza, Robert B.; Donnell, Dale E.
The purposes of this study were: (1) to examine the affirmative action recruitment and hiring procedures of a selected group of public agencies and to compare them with the Federal Guidelines on Affirmative Action, and (2) using the information gathered from other agencies and the federal guidelines, to develop a model of Affirmative Action Program of recruitment and hiring practices for presentation to the Affirmative Action Committee of the Rancho Santiago Community College District. The objectves of the Rancho Santiago Community College District Affirmative Action Program are: (1) to insure equal employment opportunity for applicants and employees, (2) to overcome underutilization of job categories that have fewer minority and female employees than would be expected in light of their availability, (3) to continuously analyze areas where utilization of minority groups and women is deficient, (4) to correct these deficiencies by seeking applicants from agencies with which minorities and women register for employment, as well as utilizing normal channels of recruitment, (5) to provide on-the-job training programs for employees, (6) to provide on-the-job training for "qualifiable" applicants, (7) to have a training program for the district staff as to the needs and requirements of the Equal Employment Opportunity Program, and (8) to assure that minority and female employees in nonacademic positions are encouraged to apply for promotion and transfer. The means of implementing these goals are given. (DB)
