Status of Minorities in Colorado Public Higher Education: Focus on Faculty and Staff, Fiscal Year 1983-84.
Colorado Commission on Higher Education, Denver.
Data on the employment of minority faculty and staff and on minority students in Colorado public higher education are provided. For universities, comprehensive and general baccalaureate colleges, and two-year colleges, the following occupational groups are covered: executive, administrative, and managerial; faculty; professional nonfaculty; clerical and secretarial; technical and paraprofessional; skilled crafts; and service/maintenance. Findings include the following: generally, minorities and females are underrepresented in the faculty and other professional jobs, but make up a disproportionately large share of the unskilled and semiskilled occupations; since fiscal year 1979-1980, a tremendous expansion in the number of part-time employees has occurred, but the percent of part-time Black and Hispanic employees has declined; Blacks and Hispanics are underrepresented in the student population at all institutional levels; the median family income for most minority groups is less than 75 percent of the overall population average; and the percentage of the minority 25-year-old and older group with an advanced college degree is less than half the rate of Whites.
