Faculty Perceptions of Continuing Education at Syracuse University.
This questionnaire survey investigated how Syracuse University faculty view their continuing education unit (University College), examined differences in their attitudes toward continuing education, and recommended action designed to improve attitudes. Usable questionnaires were returned by 243 persons. On the basis of 35 statements relating to continuing education administration, instruction, purposes, programs, and students, there was a definite tendency toward approval of University College. Variance by age, sex, rank, teaching and research involvement, tenure, and other biographical factors, was analyzed. Statistically significant results included favorable attitudes among females more than men; instructors more than professors; faculty involved in research or on noncredit teaching more than those not involved in either; professional school faculty more than those in Liberal Arts; and those with no adult education teaching experience more than those with various levels of experience. (Twenty references and the questionnaire are included.) (LY)
