THE FACULTIES OF VIRGINIA'S COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES.
LECROY, R. JAN; AND OTHERS
RECRUITING NEW FACULTY MEMBERS TO MEET THE DEMANDS OF INCREASING ENROLLMENTS IS CLEARLY ONE OF THE PRINCIPAL TASKS CONFRONTING VIRGINIA'S INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER EDUCATION. THIS DETAILED STUDY ANALYZES THE FACULTIES OF VIRGINIA'S COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES, AND MAKES RECOMMENDATIONS FOR ALLEVIATING THE PROBLEM. DATA WERE SOLICITED THROUGH A QUESTIONNAIRE SENT TO EACH INSTITUTION ASKING FOR INFORMATION ON ALL FACULTY MEMBERS. BECAUSE THE DEMAND FOR FACULTY HAS FAR OUTSTRIPPED SUPPLY, THE COMMISSION MAKES SEVERAL RECOMMENDATIONS--(1) SALARIES SHOULD BE INCREASED TO QUALIFIED PERSONNEL, (2) GREATER NUMBERS OF QUALIFIED FACULTY MEMBERS CAN BE PRODUCED BY INCREASING GRADUATE PROGRAMS, (3) UNDERGRADUATES SHOULD BE DIVERTED TO 2-YEAR INSTITUTIONS, THEREBY REDUCING UNIVERSITY RESOURCES DEVOTED TO LOWER DIVISION INSTRUCTION, (4) INSTRUCTORS SHOULD BE REQUIRED TO TEACH MORE CLASSES, AND (5) NEW TECHNIQUES OF INSTRUCTION SHOULD BE DEVELOPED.
