The Faculty Market Place--1968. University of Nebraska Lincoln Campus.
Nebraska Univ., Lincoln. Office of Institutional Research.
In view of both an improved budget for the 1967-68 biennium at the University of Nebraska and past difficulties in recruiting and retaining faculty members, it was decided to review faculty recruitments for the 1968-69 academic year and determine whether past problems had been resolved. Tables document: distribution of appointed faculty by rank, by college and by departments within the College of Arts and Sciences; hiring salary by rank and college; number of faculty in each rank by highest degree held; previous position by rank of appointed faculty; and a comparison of Nebraska's 1968 full time faculty appointments by rank with other universities. It was concluded that the University's ability to recruit senior faculty has improved somewhat, but it remains a significant problem for many units. The University is apparently able to recruit highly qualified faculty at the lower ranks within its salary ranges, but it is still not competitive at the senior level. The implications of the data gathered for a possible strategy in future recruitment are discussed. (JS)
