Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

On October 29, 1990, Dr. George Beloz, then 52, began work as the college’s first Affirmative Action Officer. Under the direction of President Borst, Beloz’s job was to assure that the college was in compliance with the regulations and executive orders of the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing, the Equal Opportunities Commission, and the State Chancellor’s Office, as well as the District’s Affirmative Action Plan. Despite Beloz’s position, the NOCCCD Board of Trustees voted 4 to 3 to support Proposition 209, which abolished affirmative action, making it illegal “to grant preferential treatment on basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity or natural origin in operation of public employment, public education or public contracting.” Beloz is shown here playing piano at a 1995 campus event.
