Affirmative Action Programs in the California Community Colleges, 1991-92: An Annual Report to the Board of Governors and the Legislature.
Sheehan, Maria C.
Through Assembly Bill (AB) 1725, the California State Legislature provided two goals for staff diversity in the state's community colleges. The near-term goal was to achieve a 30% systemwide hiring rate of ethnic minorities during the 1992-93 fiscal year, and the long-term goal was to have a workforce in the community colleges that mirrored the demographic characteristics of the state's population by the year 2005. Figures on systemwide hires during the period between fall 1990 and fall 1991 indicate that: (1) the system has reached and exceeded a 30% hiring rate of ethnic minorities by the year 1992-93; (2) of the 291 executive, managerial, and administrative jobs, 106 (36.4%) were minorities; (3) of the 1,218 faculty hires, 381 (31.2%) were minorities; (4) of the 115 non-faculty professional hires, 38 (33.0%) were minorities; (5) 327 out of the 983 (33.3%) secretarial hires were minorities; (6) 142 out of 464 (30.6%) technical and paraprofessional hires were minorities; (7) 25 of the 92 (27.2%) skills crafts hires were minorities; and (8) 195 of the 391 (49.9%) service and maintenance hires were minorities. From 1984 through 1991, the percent of women who were full-time faculty increased by 27.3%, so that in 1991 41.4% of full-time faculty members were women. The participation rate of white faculty increased by 2.0%, so that in 1991 81.1% of full-time faculty were white. The total number of faculty grew by 7.9%. Extensive data tables are appended. (MAB)
