Fringe Benefits in Public Junior Colleges.
Roberts, Clarence W.
Junior College Journal, v39 n2 October 1968
To recruit and retain qualified faculty in competition with industry and government, junior colleges have been improving their fringe benefit programs. This study examines the benefits currently available at 389 colleges and shows their order of frequency and their relation to college age, size, and location. The most frequent benefit is the retirement program. The next most frequent ones are health insurance, travel pay, sick leave, secretarial help, and major medical insurance. Next come faculty parking, social security, leave without pay, life insurance, and leave with pay. Less frequent and only irregularly available are a faculty club, discount purchases through the college, tuition-free enrollment for families, faculty housing, privileges for retired faculty, moving expenses, personal loans, mortgage loans, and availability of college facilities for private use. Further research is suggested on (1) which benefits faculty members most want, (2) the attraction of non-institutional factors (e.g., climate), and (3) whether these findings apply to administrators as well as to faculty.
