Affirmative Action says Iowa better than reported

Two statistics published in the annual report on meeting targets, Implementing the Strategic Plan 1999-00, and in the Nov. 17 issue of fyi are incorrect.

Minority representation among tenured and tenure-track faculty should be 12.2%, rather than 11.9%, and female representation among tenured and tenure-track faculty should be at 26.6%, rather than 25.7%. The error was due to a slight difference in how the percentages were calculated by two University offices.

The numbers provided by the Office of the Provost and published in the report were derived from the 1999 to 2000 Operation of Tenure Policies report, while the Office of Affirmative Action used a different method, which excluded faculty administrators, to calculate the percentages.

The data provided by Affirmative Action should have been used in the report.
