The majority of higher education institutions accept responsibility to provide incentives and activities conducive to inservice education and professional growth of their faculty. In 1972-73 data were gathered from all higher education institutions to obtain information about specific ways institutions provide activities, opportunities, and/or financial assistance direction to inservice education for faculty. Tables are presented showing various provisions, including: payment of expenses of faculty to attend professional meetings; sabbatical leave; leave without pay for professional growth; and workshops and special meetings.
