Montgomery County Community College Professional Employment Survey.
Diepenbrock, Elaine C.; And Others
Data on full-time tenured, full-time nontenured and part-time faculty at Montgomery College were gathered to determine the ratio of males to females by status and by department and to relate this information to hiring practices, fringe benefits, and teaching loads. Total figures for part- and full-time faculty and credit hours taught were compiled by the college's Department of Institutional Analysis and Research. In addition, the Montgomery County Commission on Women sent survey forms to 37 department chairmen [sic] to obtain information on hiring practices, salary levels, upward mobility programs, standard recruitment practices, fringe benefits, and position status changes; 20 departments responded. Survey results were compared to those from a study of Illinois community colleges. At Montgomery College, 34% of full-time tenured, 42% of full-time nontenured, and 37% of part-time faculty were women as compared with 34.5%, 0%, and 35.3% respectively at Illinois colleges. Data from department chairmen indicated that they were not well informed about hiring practices, pay levels, recruitment, fringe benefits, or upward mobility programs. Male/female teaching loads were comparable. Faculty change figures showed that male full-time faculty had a 7% greater chance of being hired for consecutive semesters than did females. A copy of the survey instrument and a comparison between Montgomery College and U.S. Labor Department statistics for faculty women are appended. (TR)
