Page V: Affirmative Action Goals

 < Previous Page

As a federal contractor, UCI must take affirmative action to promote the full realization of equal opportunity for women and minorities, and to have a written affirmative action plan. 

Underutilization statistics are included in the annual Affirmative Action Plan. Underutilization is defined as having fewer minorities or women in a particular job group than would reasonably be expected by their availability.  This analysis is conducted for active career staff and academic staff excluding student titles, temporary lecturers, and postgraduate researchers. 

In 2004-05, women were identified as underutilized in 11 of the 27 career staff job groups and nine of the 11 academic divisions.  Minorities as a whole were underrepresented in eight career staff job groups and two of the academic divisions, and one campuswide academic job group.  A more detailed analysis by ethnicity shows the following:

  • African Americans were underutilized in 13 career staff job groups, seven of the academic divisions, and two campuswide academic job groups. 
  • Hispanics were underutilized in fifteen career staff job groups, four of the academic divisions, and one campuswide academic job group.
  • Asians/Pacific Islanders were underutilized in four career staff job groups, two of the academic divisions, and one campuswide academic job group.
  • American Indians/Alaskan Natives were underutilized in four career staff job groups.    

For any area where underutilization has been identified, a minimum required placement goal is set equal to the expected availability percentage.  Availability is calculated based on the job areas represented at UCI in the reasonable recruitment area.  The reasonable recruitment area differs based on career staff job groups from the local county to the national level.  Availability for all academic positions is based on national statistics.
