Released Time for Faculty: Practices and Procedures in Selected Community Colleges.
A survey concerning released time for faculty was conducted of all the community colleges in Maryland, Mount Vernon College in Washington, D. C., and Northern Virginia Community College. Practices concerning the following types of released time were investigated: department or division chairman; curriculum development; curriculum coordinator; faculty senate; chairman, faculty or college senate; chairman, standing committees; coaching; summer advising; teaching first semester; excess number of students in a section; extra load over 15 hours; honors program; and special projects. Other factors related to released time were also surveyed: who determines who gets released time; number of faculty who get released time in one semester; are there written policies and procedures for released time; staff or supporting services. Results for each college are tabulated by "type" and "other factor." The policies and procedures for Harford, Howard, and Northern Virginia Community Colleges and an excerpt from the "Policies and Procedures Manual" of Montgomery Community College are attached. (KM)
