This document is a report on a survey of college faculty for 1972-73 compiled from results of a faculty questionnaire. The document is composed of descriptions of the design of the study, the survey form, the national norms, and an overview of the findings. Included as appendixes are the names of institutions represented by faculty respondents, a sample of the questionnaire, and tables of weighted national normative distributions. The overview of the findings indicates the following about the average college faculty member in this country: over 40, tenured, white, male, masters degree recipient, religious, politically conservative, and born of a father with an eighth grade education and a mother who completed high school; also, his previous work experience was not college teaching but research or administrative work or precollege teaching. The report indicates that advances in the employment of blacks and women over a 5-year period have been slight. The tables in the appendix also indicate faculty opinions about current educational issues. (JA)
