The Management of Affirmative Action Programs: A Follow-up Report.
Kronovet, Esther
After initiating a survey in 1973 to study the "manager" of affirmative action programs, a followup was conducted among the same 58 public institutions throughout New York State to determine (1) whether there has been any change in the perception of the role of affirmative action officer, (2) the turnover rate among those assigned affirmative action responsibility, (3) the extent to which affirmative action committees have been organized, and (4) whether the productivity of the "manager" of affirmative action has resulted in an affirmative action plan on file with the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare. The findings indicate that there has been an increase in the number of individuals with full-time affirmative action responsibility at both the four-year colleges and agricultural and technical schools. However, there was no increase among the community colleges. Individuals assigned affirmative action duties on a collateral basis continue to have job titles that cover a range of positions. There was a substantial turnover rate among affirmative action officers from 1973 to 1974. More than 50 percent of the institutions surveyed report that their affirmative action plans are "in preparation." (Author)
