Title

Office of Social Action Programs Annual Report, 1973—1974

Description

Dr. Edward Collymore's 1973—1974 annual report of the Office of Social Action Programs shows clearly his dissatisfaction with the speed and effectiveness of affirmative action implementation and utilization of partner groups in this effort at Villanova. His report notes that in the past year Villanova had been notified by both Federal and State officials regarding multiple complaints related to discrimination in the university's employment policies. Collymore recommends that in order to avoid future complaints a review of the university's affirmative action policies was necessary. To bolster this argument, Collymore also notes that Villanova could better rely on their partner organization, Project Equality, to ensure an independent review of university policies. Collymore highlighted his frustration by including the following line: "The University Community does not fully realize the seriousness of having a workable affirmative action plan and the part they, as member of the Community, must play."
