Affirmative Action Goals
As a federal contractor, UCI must take affirmative action to promote the full realization of equal opportunity for women, minorities, covered veterans and individuals with disabilities, 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.

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.

Statistical Highlights
In 2007-2008, of the 27 career staff job groups, women were identified as underutilized in 12 job groups and minorities as a whole in seven.  A more detailed analysis by ethnicity shows the following:

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

In 2007-2008 women faculty were underutilized in eight of the 11 academic divisions1 at the tenured level and in two academic divisions at the tenure-track level.  In addition, underutilization by race/ethnicity was identified in several units (see Graph 10)2

Underutilization was also identified for women and minorities in non-regular-rank academic job groups. Detailed underutilization tables, including placement goals, are available for viewing in the Office of Equal Opportunity and Diversity during regular business hours. 


1 Due to small numbers in the programs in the College of Health Sciences, faculty in the School of Medicine and the CHS programs were combined into one academic unit.
2 American Indians/Alaskan Natives were not identified as underutilized in the regular-rank faculty for any of the academic divisions.
