Affirmative Action and Inaction: The Status of Minorities and Women at Public Two-Year Colleges in New York State and the Nation. Rockefeller Institute Working Papers, Number 24, Fall 1986.
Hankin, Joseph N.
A study was conducted to determine the extent to which women and minorities were employed as administrators and faculty members at two-year colleges. State directors of two-year colleges and individual institutions provided data representing 770 public two-year colleges in 48 states. Study findings included the following: (1) the percentage of female and minority administrators rose from 25.66% in 1975 to 39.16% in 1983; (2) faculties showed a more modest increase from 39.23% in 1975 to 42.86% in 1983; (3) 145 public two-year community colleges had no minority administrators, 30 had no female administrators, and 21 had neither a minority nor a female administrator; (4) there were no minority faculty members at 63 campuses and no women faculty members at one college; (5) 23 of the colleges with no minority faculty members had no minority administrators either; and (6) although New York compared favorably to the rest of the nation in terms of the employment of female administrators and faculty, the state fell far short of national averages with respect to minorities. The study report includes recommendations for improving minority and female representation on two-year college faculties and administrations. (EJV)
