Professorial Involvement in Community Junior College Education.
Kintzer, Frederick C.
An analysis of the relationships university faculty have had with community colleges is presented. It is pointed out that the attitudes and knowledge that university faculty possess often affect their actions relative to community college transfer students. At the 1965 meeting of the All-University Faculty Conference, the need for University leadership with respect to its lower division was left unmistakably clear. The potential of the University to strengthen its partnership with community colleges depends on the willingness of the faculty to participate. A survey was conducted to measure the present level of such a commitment of the UCLA faculty. Information was specifically sought with respect to individual involvement in community college education as student, teacher, administrator, parent of student, researcher, and consultant. Approximately 60 percent of the respondents to a questionnaire indicated some involvement with a community college or offered an opinion. Fifteen percent had attended a community college. Statements about community colleges included such comments as "smaller classed,""more individual attention,""better instruction," and "superior faculty." Areas in which the community college were rated include: services to students, academic preparation, counseling, disadvantaged students, and community colleges, university articulation. (CK)
