A New Program for the Preparation of Junior College Faculty.
McClure, M. L.; And Others
This document reports the development of a program for the preparation of junior college faculty. A survey of 34 college administrators conducted in the fall of 1970 verified the need for special programs dealing with unique philosophies and problems of a junior college. Junior college administrators from Kansas, Arkansas, Texas, Missouri, and Oklahoma were invited to a conference held at Northeastern. Other purposes of the conference were a) to determine the needs of junior colleges in employing additional faculty, b) to determine the academic and professional experiences junior college administrators were seeking in prospective faculty, c) to orient the faculty at Northeastern to the role and philosophy of the junior college, d) to meet the need for educational planning in Oklahoma, and e) to determine the role of Northeastern in meeting the needs of the junior colleges. On the basis of recommendations made during the conference, a proposed junior college teaching program was presented to the Board of Regents of Oklahoma. It was approved and expanded enabling Northeastern to offer a master of education degree in junior college teaching. A 11-team bibliography is included. Appendixes present a survey of junior college administrators, junior college conference participants, and the current status of the program. (MJM)
