An Examination of the Chicano Advisory Committee's Effect on the Establishment of College Policy [and] An Examination of the Committee's Implementation of a Chicano Recruitment Project.
Hernandez, Edward, Jr.
A questionnaire was developed and administered to 200 present and past Chicano Advisory Committee (CAC) members, including Chicano and non-Chicano faculty, college administrators, and Chicano students, staff, and community members. Information was gathered on the role the CAC plays in policy-making at Pasadena City College (California). Respondents generally felt that CAC is an important and positive contributor to the college's policy-making process, although improvements, especially in the areas of committee authority, speed, and visibility, need to be implemented. Another questionnaire was developed and administered to 400 Chicano students, faculty, administrators, members of the Chicano recruitment staff, and present and past members of the CAC, in order to measure the effectiveness and direction of the Chicano Recruitment Project. While viewing present recruiting efforts as effective and positive, respondents felt that a more intensive effort is needed, with increased funding and staff, and more varied recruiting methods. The author provides a model for a Chicano recruitment project, including steps needed to develop a more effective program. In addition, suggestions for the development of more effective CAC operating procedures are presented. A bibliography is included, and the questionnaire results are appended. (NHM)
