An Affirmative Action Availability Analysis for Physical Education.
Perry, Jean L.; Milner, E. Keith
The purpose of this 1979 study was to determine the ethnic origin and sex of faculty members and of doctoral students in universities offering advanced degrees in health, physical education, or recreation. It was suggested that such data may be used by institutions to determine future work force availability and to formulate affirmative action plans. Data gathered were used to determine the composition of the pool of qualified candidates for teaching and research positions. Questionnaire responses were received from 71 department heads of health, physical education, and recreation programs. Results gathered from the Equal Employment Opportunity Survey of Current Faculty and Doctoral Students in Health, Physical Education and Recreation yielded the number of male and female doctoral students and faculty members, by area of specialization, who were American Indian or Alaskan Native, black (not of Hispanic origin), Asian or Pacific Islander, Hispanic, and white (not of Hispanic origin). Tables present availability figures on: (1) doctoral students and faculty in health, physical education, and recreation; (2) doctoral students and faculty, by area of specialization, in health; (3) doctoral students and faculty, by area of specialization, in physical education; and (4) doctoral students and faculty, by area of specialization, in recreation. A discussion is presented on conclusions and recommendations drawn from this data. (JD)
