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 identified when a job group’s actual workforce representation is less than the estimated availability, by at least one whole person.  This analysis is conducted for active career staff and academic staff, excluding student titles, temporary lecturers, and postdoctoral scholars. 

In 2006-07, both women and minorities as a whole were identified as underutilized in 10 of the 27 career staff job groups.  A more detailed analysis by ethnicity shows the following:
  • African Americans were underutilized in 14 career staff job groups.
  • Hispanics were underutilized in 15 career staff job groups.
  • Asians/Pacific Islanders were underutilized in three career staff job groups.
  • American Indians/Alaskan Natives were underutilized in five career staff job groups.    
During that same year, in the tenured and tenure-track faculty ranks, women were underutilized in nine of the 11 academic divisions.  In addition, underutilization by race/ethnicity was identified as follows:
  • African Americans in five of the academic divisions.
  • Hispanics in two of the academic divisions.
  • Asians/Pacific Islanders in one of the academic divisions.
Underutilization was also identified for women and minorities in the other academic job groups. 

The following pages illustrate the areas of underutilization and non-representation of women and minorities in academic and career staff job groups. 

For any area where underutilization has been identified, a 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 from the local county to the national level based on career staff job groups.  Availability for all academic positions is based on national statistics.

Detailed underutilization tables, including placement goals, are available for viewing in the Office of Equal Opportunity and Diversity during regular business hours.
