The Humanities in Two-Year Colleges: Faculty Characteristics.
Schlesinger, Sue H., Ed.
Contained in this document are the results of nine studies in which various aspects of two-year college faculty were investigated. Data used in the studies were obtained from a 1975 nationwide study of 1,998 two-year college faculty, of whom 1,493 were humanities instructors and 505 were non-humanities faculty members. The areas investigated include: (1) characteristics of the well-functioning faculty member; (2) characteristics of outstanding instructors; (3) identification of interdisciplinary instructors; (4) part-time humanities instructors; (5) faculty attitudes toward affirmative action; (6) a comparison of fine arts instructors and social scientists; (7) dominant faculty values; (8) faculty preferences for self-actualization versus salary; and (9) job satisfaction and working conditions. The investigators were: Victor Cruz-Cardona, Andrew Hill, Don Karvelis, Rose-Lise Obetz, Sue H. Schlesinger, Eleanor Hammer, Josephine M. Fay, Len O'Hara, and Jack Friedlander. (JDS)
