How Many Hours per Week Are Full-Time Community College Counselors Expected to Work? Evidence Indicates That in California No Uniform Load Exists.
Kester, Donald L.
The purpose of this study was to discover the workload policy for full-time counselors at each California community college and to compare them to see what variability existed. The response rate to questionnaires sent to all California community colleges was 79 per cent. Workloads were found to range from 15 to 40 hours per week. It is believed that the load policy of counselors is affected by power politics, as it is much more variable for counselors than for instructors. There is an indication that the present variance will diminish over time. Some pressure toward a more uniform load policy is the result of counselors seeing themselves and their profession as distinct, and seeing value in cooperative efforts designed to preserve and enhance their status.
