Staff Development: Perceptions of Faculty and Administrators at Selected Community Colleges in Illinois.
Christensen, Frank A.
Perceptions of community college faculty and administrators concerning faculty development needs, and of faculty incentive systems, institutional climate, and institutional values as they relate to faculty development, were compared in this study. A Faculty Development Inventory was mailed to a random sample of 75 administrators and 150 faculty at three Illinois community colleges. An overall response rate of 64% was achieved. Data analysis indicated that there were no significant differences between the perceptions of faculty and administrators concerning faculty development needs or the importance of various incentive systems. However, significant differences were found in perceptions of institutional climate (which administrators saw as unimaginative, dull, and repetitive) and institutional values. An extensive bibliography and the Faculty Development Inventory are appended. (JDS)
