An Analysis of Cuyahoga Community College's Progress at Equal Opportunity Compliance.
Thornton, Maurice
Background information and findings are presented for a study of Cuyahoga Community College's (CCC's) progress toward equal opportunity compliance as of 1979-80 and of the interaction between three "subcultures" in the history of this compliance. Chapter I identifies these "subcultures" as the advocates, adversaries, and enforcers of affirmative action. It also defines terms, identifies study questions and limitations, and discusses the legal mandates upon which compliance is judged in the study, i.e., Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and its subsequent interpretation in Adams vs. Califano (1977). Chapter II examines the Adams case and its implications for higher education in Ohio and for public two-year colleges. Chapter III outlines the methods used to determine compliance in the areas of facilities, programs, and employment. Chapter IV presents statistical and narrative findings related to: (1) how CCC facility sites were selected; (2) issues of and barriers to minority access to these facilities; (3) how CCC had overcome these barriers; (4) compliance of construction with equal opportunity regulations; (5) campus and magnet program enrollment by race and sex; (6) CCC's efforts to increase minority participation; (7) equal employment compliance given current availability of minorities in the employment pool; and (8) the roles of the "subcultures" in compliance. Finally, Chapter V summarizes findings and outlines recommendations. (JP)
