Balance of Staff by Junior College Recruiters.
Scott, David C.
This study concerns two questions regarding staff recruitment and balancing in junior colleges: (1) should college administrators attempt to balance staff in terms of marital status, religion, age, politics, etc.; and (2) do they achieve the balance they are seeking. Administrators involved in faculty recruitment in the Kern Joint Junior College District were interviewed, and all faculty members in the district answered a questionnaire regarding their perceptions on why they were hired. Responses showed that Kern administrators attempted to hire faculty mainly on the basis of academic and educational skill. However, there were some preferences for younger people with innovative ideas. Although no deliberate effort was made, a balance of personal factors was achieved. The majority of both faculty and recruiting administrators perceived the same hiring criteria. (MS)
