Patterns of Response: Faculty Community Service Survey.
The report tabulates and discusses the responses of 2346 members (70 percent) of the University of Minnesota faculty to a survey questionnaire examining faculty involvement in community service programs. Twenty-nine tables present numbers and percentages of responses with respect to descriptive characteristics of the faculty (discipline, academic rank, years of service, and major university responsibility), individual faculty obligations (academic and professional propriety of community involvement, and rewards for community service), opinions about social problems (need for societal reorganization, university's role in redressing social injustice, and the university and urban problems), necessary conditions and ambiguities of university involvement in community programs and services (faculty involvement and special skills, participation and disciplinary relevance, special staffs, community volunteers, and vested interests), and supplemental information (group affiliation, faculty involvement in extension programs, and faculty ranking on a national scale of the university and their department). Three pages of additional comments are included. (JR)
