A Survey and Analysis of Part-Time Instructors at J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College [Virginia].
Grymes, Robert J., Jr.
During the 1975 fall quarter, J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College (Richmond, Virginia) conducted a survey of its part-time faculty members. Of the 346 part-time instructors at the college, 254 (73.4%) returned usable questionnaires. The factors investigated were: (1) their characteristics--age, race, sex, educational background, previous teaching experience; (2) whether or not they were generally satisfied with their association with the college; (3) the methods by which they were introduced to, or recruited by, the college; (4) whether or not they were employed elsewhere and, if so, whether their other employment was in education or in a field related to the subject they were teaching; (5) the primary reason(s) why they were teaching at J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College; (6) whether or not the college was giving them adequate support and assistance; (7) the extent to which they were available to students for counseling and advising; and (8) whether or not they wanted to become more involved in college and/or divisional activities. The report includes an analysis of each factor as well as representative samples of individual comments and suggestions. All tables and figures are presented, as is a copy of the survey form.
