Employment in Connecticut Public Institutions of Higher Education: 1979 to 1983. Research Report R-3-84.
Connecticut State Board of Higher Education, Hartford.
Information on employees in Connecticut's 22 public institutions of higher education in fall 1983 is presented, along with comparative data for 1979 and 1981 employment patterns. Employment by the seven Equal Employment Opportunity Commission occupational categories is also analyzed. A separate section provides information on faculty employment, and data by institution for 1983 are included. Important findings include the following: the total number of full-time positions has declined; the decline is greatest in support positions; and the only overall growth area appears to be at the levels of executive/administrative/managerial. Faculty minority employment is maintaining its position in a period of declining employment, reflecting growth in employment for Asians and American Indians (numbers of Blacks and Hispanics, however, declined slightly between 1979 and 1983). More detailed findings are as follows: there were 92 fewer full-time faculty in 1983 than in 1979 and 1981; only the state technical colleges showed an overall gain from 1979, up 35 faculty; from 1981 to 1983, women improved their representation only in the secretarial/clerical category and maintained their representation among faculty. Information is included on faculty employment by rank and tenure, and by part-time or full-time status. (SW)
