Published Lincoln : University of Nebraska Press, 2000


Description 1 online resource (xxiii, 250 pages)
Contents Introduction: Race, Ethnicity, and Gender in America -- A History of Affirmative Action -- Inequality and Bureaucratic Representation in Government Employment -- Blacks in Higher Education Employment -- White Women in Higher Education Employment -- Hispanics in Higher Education Employment -- Asians and Native Americans in Higher Education Employment -- Minority and Female Doctorates -- The Political and Socioeconomic Determinants of Higher Education Employment
Summary Affirmative Action and the University is the only full-length study to examine the impact of affirmative action on all higher education hiring practices. Drawing on data provided by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics, the authors summarize, track, and evaluate changes in the gender and ethnic makeup of academic and nonacademic employees at private and public colleges and universities from the late 1970s through the mid-1990s. Separate chapters assess changes in employment opportunities for white women, blacks, Asians, Hispanics, and Native Americans. The authors look at the extent to which a two-tier employment system exists. In such a system minorities and women are more likely to make their greatest gains in non-elite positions rather than in faculty and administrative positions. The authors also examine differences in hiring practices between public and private colleges and universities. Kul B. Rai is a professor of political science at Southern Connecticut State University. His works include "America in the Twenty-First Century: Challenges and Opportunities in Domestic Politics". John W. Critzer is a professor of political science at Southern Connecticut State University
