Faculty Work Load; Report of a Survey in Two-Year Colleges.
National Faculty Association of Community and Junior Colleges, Washington, DC.
Faculty course load requirements and their relationship to college size (small, medium, or large), location (north, south, middle, or west), and degree of faculty participation in work condition policy determination were the concern of this National Faculty Association of Community and Junior Colleges' study. Of the 993 junior colleges contacted, 242 returned study questionnaires, providing data for the following conclusions: size of faculty course load showed no significant correlation with size of college, although there was some tendency for smaller colleges to demand more contact time than middle or larger ones; size of faculty course load was most frequently lower in the northern and middle regions, and only in these regions has any significant advance been made in reducing the maximum teaching load; size of faculty course load in the junior colleges was far heavier in terms of contact and credit hours than at most 4-year colleges; and faculty participation in determining their work conditions was slight, and, where existent, was most often asserted through negotiated faculty and administrative agreements.
