Black Employees in Traditionally White Institutions in the Adams States 1975 to 1977.
Southern Education Foundation, Atlanta, GA.
The status of black employees was examined in traditionally white institutions of higher education in eight states affected by the Adams v. Califano desegregation case; patterns of change in that status over a two-year period, 1975-77, were also explored. The object of the study was to use the Equal Employment Opportunity information system to construct longitudinal records on the employment of black workers in order to show relationships between employment variables such as race, sex, salary, and primary occupational activity. A further purpose was to analyze the status of black employees to show relationships between employment variables and institutional types, such as flagship institutions and community colleges, and the selectivity of institutions. Several findings are cited such as: white males dominated at the highest salary levels and black women at the lowest; for blacks the change in primary occupational activity share was greater in non-faculty than in faculty positions; and in 1977 when the opportunity came to hire new workers, 85 percent of those hired were white. Appendices include institutional types, equal employment opportunity commission staff information, blacks as a percent of the total population in the Adams states, and a list of traditionally white institutions eligible for study by the state.
