The jump in the percentage of minority employees in the University's executive/ administrator/manager category between 1993 and 1994 (from 8 percent to 10 percent) reflects the largest ratio of minorities ever to hold managerial positions in Emory's history. The 1994 figures are included in the recently published 1995 annual update of Emory's Affirmative Action Plan.
Ethridge said that in addition to Emory's success in diversifying its management staff, the University also saw a marked increase in minorities in the overall non-faculty employee category last year. The proportion of minorities in non-faculty positions increased from 35 percent in 1993 to 43.8 percent in 1994. In addition, the ratio of minorities in four of six non-faculty job categories increased in 1994 over the previous year.
"A lot of people in the Atlanta area and nationally are well aware of our efforts to diversify our faculty and staff," Ethridge said, " and they therefore become interested in coming here themselves. The 1996 Summer Olympics, as well as the Cultural Olympiad, also make the city and Emory very attractive. We also have a good benefits program, and that attracts a lot of qualified people."
