Phair, Tom S.
As a part of the annual Supply and Demand Survey conducted by the Research Committee of the California Educational Placement Association (C.E.P.A.), 104 public community colleges in California were asked to report on their hiring of full-time faculty and staff during the 1975-76 academic year. Survey responses came from 101 institutions. A total of 1,481 full-time faculty and staff were reported hired, of whom 188 (12.7 percent) were returning from leaves of absence or sabbatical, 289 (19.5 percent) were former substitutes, 954 (64.4 percent) were new to the district, and 50 (3.4 percent) were new positions gained through special funding. Data were collected as to specific field vacancies filled. A short narrative section compares the C.E.P.A. data with that of previous years of California Community and Junior College Association reports on staffing patterns. Trends noted include an upward trend in the expansion of student services, as reflected in an increase from 69 to 154 full-time counselors hired, and a heavy influx of new instructors in health services, vocational, and business subject fields. Within the academic subject fields, social science, and English showed the greatest increase over the previous year. The survey instrument is appended, and data are organized into two tables.
