An Analysis of Humanities Education in Two-Year Colleges: Phase 2--The Faculty, 1975-1976.
Cohen, Arthur M.; Brawer, Florence B.
Because of the dearth of available information on humanities education in the two-year college, the Center for the Study of Community Colleges began a multiphased project in June 1974. The project began with an intensive literature review and the selection of certain critical areas for analysis. During the second phase of the project, three monographs detailing the results of the literature review were published, a nationwide survey of the faculty teaching humanities in two-year colleges was conducted, the data from the faculty survey were tabulated and analyzed, and certain dissemination activities were undertaken. The first part of this six-part document presents a brief overview of the first two phases and an introduction to Phase 3. The remaining five parts present reports of the various activities and findings of Phase 2, including: (1) a review of the processes used to select the faculty sample, which consisted of 2,384 faculty members at 156 colleges, and of obtaining responses, which resulted in an 84 percent response rate; (2) a copy of the faculty survey instrument, and a description of how it was developed and how responses were assessed; (3) the tabulated responses of the humanities faculty; (4) interpretations of the responses to the survey and further findings; and (5) a review of the various methods used to disseminate the information collected.
