The Junior College Faculty in Oklahoma.
Higgins, A. Stephen
This paper is a descriptive analysis of the Oklahoma junior college system and the interrelationships existing between its faculty, students, alumni and concerned citizens. Primary emphasis was on the use of a survey attempting to describe the personal and professional characteristics of the present junior college faculty, and their attitudes and values concerning the community/junior college movement in the state and nation; the analysis of personal characteristics resulted in the development of a profile of a "typical" junior college faculty member. Other areas discussed were: (1) the relative importance assigned by faculty members to such programs as transfer, paraprofessional, vocational, and community service; (2) the self-perceived role of faculty in college governance, curriculum planning, and the development of institutional goals; and (3) faculty perceptions of admissions standards, counseling and guidance effectiveness, and supervision of student activities.
