Minority Group Equity at Delta College: Trends in Student Access and Affirmative Action Hiring. Research Note.
Evans, John W.; Morris, Anita
To provide a progress report on efforts to increase access to minority students and diversify the teaching and administrative ranks, a study was conducted at San Joaquin Delta College (SJDC), in California, of recent trends in minority student attendance and graduation rates and the ethnic composition of faculty and administrative staff. Results of the analysis included the following: (1) as of July 1993, students attending SJDC generally reflected the ethnic composition of the district population, although whites and Hispanics were underrepresented relative to their district proportions and Asians were overrepresented; (2) for the 1986-87 and 1992-93 academic years, the ethnic composition of students receiving degrees and certificates was remarkably similar to the ethnic make-up of the student population 3 years previously; (3) since 1986-87, the percent of white administrators has declined from 81% to 71%, with a corresponding increase in minority administrators from 19% to 29%; (4) Hispanic administrators have increased from 8% to 13% in this period, compared to an increase from 4% to 11% for Blacks and a decrease from 6% to 5% for Asians; and (5) the percent of white full-time faculty has declined from 82% to 74% in this period, with Hispanics increasing from 7% to 10%, Blacks from 5% to 7%, and Asians from 6% to 9%.
