Faculty Attitudes in Two-Year Colleges: A Review of the Literature, 1960-1974.
Weddington, Doris
This literature review focuses upon studies which classify two-year college faculty by demographic and experiential typologies, particularly those studies relating faculty demographic and experiential characteristics to their attitudes towards specific community college concepts. The first section presents observations and recommendations expressed by leaders in the community college field, including faculty attitudes toward different types of students, comprehensive community college policies and community college practices, as well as suggested relationships between faculty characteristics and faculty attitudes. The second section reviews surveys of faculty characteristics and opinions. The third section examines systematic research studies attempting to relate faculty characteristics to faculty attitudes. The fourth section presents a tabular display of the findings of the review classified by nine dependent attitudinal variables and twelve independent variables in faculty characteristics, and providing the specific attitudinal variable in the study reported, nature of relationship, statistical significance, survey or study, geographical scope, investigator, and year. A bibliography of the literature cited completes the document. (LH)
