The number of female employees at Ball State University is holding steady and the school's minority workforce is growing.

The university's director of affirmative action, Melissa Rubrecht, told The Star Press ( ) that its female population has been relatively stable over the past decade, at around 54 percent of the workforce.

The number of minorities working at the school increased from 8.9 percent to 11.5 percent in the last 10 years.

"This is a good indication over the last 10 years that we are moving in the right direction as far as increasing the demographics of our workforce," Rubrecht said.

The school had more than 3,900 employees at the end of October, when a workforce snapshot indicated that more affirmative action should be taken to recruit employees with disabilities.
