Pursuant to Education Code 6693.1 (AB 605, Hughes, 1985) and its predecessor (AB 105, Hughes, 1977) the Commission has reported biennially and since 1979 on "the representation and utilization of ethnic minorities and woman among academic, administrative, and other employees" in California public postsecondary education. This report is the sixth and last in the series, and it provides information on the gender, ethnic, and racial composition of staff in the California Community Colleges, the California State University, and the University of California through the 1989-90 academic year.

The report is organized into seven parts:

  • Part One on pages 1-4 discusses the origin, preparation, limitations, and organization of the report.
  • Part Two on pages 5-8 provides information on the amount and nature of growth in staff in the segments during the time period covered by this report.
  • Part Three on pages 9-26 identifies changes in the composition of staff within the public postsecondary segments between 1979 and 1989 for the California Community Colleges and between 1977 and 1989 for the California State University and the University of California.
  • Part Four on pages 27-30 compares the composition of the segmental staffs with that of the California labor force -- the traditional basis for judgments about the effectiveness of affirmative action policies and procedures.
  • Part Five on pages 31-34 contrasts the composition of the segmental staffs with that of California's population -- the comparative base established by the Commission with respect to education equity.
  • Part Six on pages 35-38 presents information on the segments' affirmative action programs designed to increase the diversity of staff and prepare individuals to assume managerial and administrative positions.
  • And Part Seven on pages 39-40 offers two conclusions and four Commission commitments, based on the data presented in the previous sections.
The Commission adopted this report at its meeting on April 28, 1991, on recommendation of its Policy Evaluation Committee.
