Community Junior College Faculty: Needs, Characteristics, and Sources.
Wurster, Stanley R.
The growing need for junior college teachers stimulated this examination of teacher characteristics and potential sources of new teachers. Since junior colleges will receive an increasing share of the nation's college enrollment, junior colleges must attract qualified faculty members. The literature on junior college faculty characteristics provides insights into the origins and education of present teachers and suggests sources of future teachers. Many teachers come from the staffs of high schools, universities, and other colleges. Other sources are graduate schools, business, and industry. The author suggests that retired military personnel might be a potential source of junior college teachers and that present junior college students and graduates should be encouraged to consider teaching. Part-time teachers from the professional or business world can enrich the junior college curriculum. (MS)
