Recommendations To Increase Opportunities for Women and Minorities within the North Carolina Community College System. Task Force Report to the State Board of Community Colleges.
North Carolina Community Coll. System, Raleigh.
In 1992, the North Carolina State Board of Community Colleges adopted a new policy to demonstrate its commitment to include women and minorities in administrative roles. A task force was formed to make recommendations, outlined in this document, for implementing the new policy within the North Carolina Community College System (NCCCS). Included in this report are the NCCCS mission and policy statements, as well as twenty policy recommendations. The mission statement focuses on the development of individual student potential and diversity management. The policy statement expands upon these issues and states initiatives for increasing diversity and nurturing greater awareness, including developing diversity plans, creating and expanding professional development programs and activities, and strengthening recruitment efforts, search committee processes, and retention strategies. Twenty specific recommendations for implementing a comprehensive diversity enhancement strategy follow. Preceded by commitment statements from the trustees and presidents of local community colleges and the State Board for Community Colleges, these recommendations set the stage for effective institutional change.
