An Analysis of Junior College Personnel Needs for 1968-1969.
Templeton, Wilma M.; Wyke, Samuel D.
Letters were sent to 877 junior colleges listed in the American Association of Junior Colleges Directory (1967). Those expected to open in 1968 were included in the mailing. The colleges were asked to send the number of instructional and administrative vacancies they expected for the academic year 1968-69 and the qualifications required of applicants for the positions. The data were to show the demand for personnel according to subject field and geographical area, as well as the salaries by subject field, by age, size, and type of institution, by kind of position, and by qualifications. The results are based on the 115 replies received by February 1968, representing colleges in 32 states and one from the Canal Zone. The replies showed that (1) 498 positions were available, (2) none were open in home economics, 82 were open in economics and business, 52 in English, and eight in art, (3) 423 of the vacancies were in the Southeast, Northeast, and Midwest, (4) 419 were in public institutions, (5) vacancies had no relation to age or size of institution, (6) 437 positions were in the teaching area, (7) 384 required at least a master's degree, and (8) higher salaries ($10,000 or over) were offered by the public institutions. It was felt that, since so few replies were received in time for use, the survey was not truly representative. (HH)
