Grand Rapids Community College aims to increase number of minority faculty and staff members

The Grand Rapids Press
Grand Rapids Community College officials say they have done a good job adding minority employees over the years, but need to do better to approach the diversity of the student population.

The number of minority employees is down slightly from 2001, dropping from 18.9 percent of 634 employees to 18.2 percent of 688 in 2009 -- though the number of women has climbed from 50.9 percent to 54.2 percent.

But about 25 percent of the college's 18,000 full-time students are minorities.

"We're doing better but our goal is to reflect the population of our students," said Cathy Wilson, GRCC's executive director of human resources.

The disparity among full-time faculty members is greater than the overall campus work force, with 15.2 percent being minorities. And only 8.4 percent of the campus' adjunct professors are minorities this year.
