Hiring of Science and Engineering Faculty by 2- and 4-Year Colleges. Science Resources Studies Highlights, June 26, 1978.
National Science Foundation, Washington, DC. Div. of Science Resources Studies.
Reported are the results of a National Science Foundation-sponsored survey conducted by the Higher Education Panel of the American Council on Education. For this survey, the Council asked the 535 2- and 4-year colleges belonging to the Panel how many full-time faculty they hired in 1976-77 in selected fields, the proportion of those hired who had doctorates, and how these proportions might change in the future. The Council weighted data supplied by the 84% of the institutions which responded to obtain estimates describing the hiring practices and plans of all United States 2- and 4-year institutions.
