classifications, but 23.52 per
cent of the lower paying C-2's,
the report said.
The report pointed out how-
ever, that the proportion of mi-
nority clericals in the higher
salary grades did increase dur-
ing the time of the study.
AFFIRMATIVE ac-
tion goals, the report conclud-
ed, were in most cases missed
-by rather dramatic propor-
tions. In many cases depart-
mental shortfall figures were
greater than 10 per cent. This
means more employes were lost
than were gained.
The Institute for Social Re-
search (ISR) was also criticiz-
ed for its low number of wom-
en and minority employes. Of
those holding research positions,
only 3.2 per cent are minorities,
and 9.7 per cent non-minority
women. The total number of-
available minority workers ex-
ceeds their actual representa-
tion in ISR by almost three
times.
THE REPORT made a simi-
lar comparison with the Insti-

tute for Science and Research,
which employs only 2.1 per cent
minorities and 6.3 per cent non-
minority women in comparable
positions.
This is traceable, according
to the study, to the greater op-
portunities made available to
non-minority males in the area
of graduate research and train-
ing.
The School of Engineering,
the Literary College (LSA), the
Medical School, and several
other University divisions, were
evaluated as having made no
significant increases in their
minority and women employ-
ment levels.
THE REPORT notes that sal-
ary procedures have been re-
vised to be administered more
equitably. In this area, the Uni-
versity received fairly good
grades.
However, in the maintenance/
service classifications, minority
employes average $8,872 per
year. Non-minority females
earn an average of $7,791 per
year, while white males bring
in $10,103 per year.
