Where the (Affirmative) Action Is (or Is Not): The Status of Minorities and Women among the Faculty and Administrators of Public Two-Year Colleges, 1983-1984.
Hankin, Joseph N.
A study was conducted to obtain information on the numbers and percentages of females and minorities in the administrations and faculties of public two-year colleges. The study involved a canvass of 33 public two-year colleges and a survey sent to all 50 state directors of public two-year colleges. Study findings, based on a composite of the responses from 22 of the two-year institutions surveyed and data provided by 29 state directors, included the following: (1) 29.8% of the administrators and 39.2% of the faculty members represented in the survey data were female; (2) 13.4% of the administrators and 9.86% of the faculty members were from minority groups; and (3) at least 6.5% of the administrators and 3.7% of the faculty members in the study were black. Comments on affirmative action provided by some survey respondents and a discussion of the implications of the findings of the study are included. (HB)
