Summary

Policies, relevant enrollment data, and plans of action for recruiting and retaining minority students are presented in a student affirmative action plan for the California community colleges. After introductory material outlining the goals of student affirmative action and the legal responsibility of state and district educational authorities to achieve these goals, the Plan examines the underrepresentation of ethnic minorities, women, those with low incomes, handicapped individuals, and older adults in community college enrollments. The need to correct this underrepresentation through improved access, retention, and institutional commitment is then discussed, followed by suggested plans of action for: (1) expanded efforts in outrech, recruitment, and admissions; (2) more responsive counseling, student affairs, basic skills, and tutorial services; (3) the continued development of special programs and financial support for underrepresented students, such as the Extended Opportunity Programs and Services; and (4) improved faculty, staff, and student awareness of underrepresented students and their preferred modes of learning.
