Toward a New Diversity: Guidelines for a Staff Diversity/Affirmative Action Plan.
California Community Colleges, Sacramento. Office of the Chancellor.
These guidelines for California's community colleges specify required elements of a staff diversity/affirmative action plan, recommend sound practices and activities that will maximize the likelihood of success, and provide information on, and required elements of, related issues such as sexual harassment, handicap discrimination, and AIDS in the workplace. The guidelines are divided into four sections. The first of these sections identifies required and recommended roles and responsibilities of the state chancellor's office, local governing boards, college chief executive officers, staff diversity/affirmative action officers and advisory committees, and faculty and staff. The second section presents required and recommended elements for formal institutional policy statements on staff diversity and affirmative action, and provides a sample statement. The third section outlines the operational components of a staff diversity plan, including a workforce analysis, faculty/staff in-service training, employment procedures, complaint procedures, corrective action, plan revision and dissemination, and concerns about the campus environment. A chart is provided which lists, for each of the components, its purpose, steps to achieve that purpose, legal authorization, evaluation standards, responsibility, and resources for assistance. Finally, a checklist of elements required for the statewide staff diversity/affirmative action audit is presented. (JMC)
