A Survey of Faculty Attitudes Toward Participation in the Policy and Procedural Process at Los Angeles Community College Overseas (1976).
Sutherland, Alphonzo A.
Los Angeles Community College Overseas (LACCO) operates educational programs for military personnel in Korea. Faculty are drawn from local resources; all are employed by LACCO on a part-time basis. Faculty interest in participating in the policy making and procedural process of LACCO and their perceptions of problem areas were investigated through a survey questionnaire. Of 110 faculty, 34% responded. Results indicated that working conditions were most frequently identified as a faculty concern, student motivation and student quality were noted as problem areas as was inadequate definition of faculty role, and, although faculty were generally willing to participate in curricular reform, they were reluctant to become involved in LACCO policy making. Efforts to improve communication with the faculty and to reduce high faculty turnover are recommended. (JDS)
