James Madison University Survey of Faculty Activities.
James Madison Univ., Harrisonburg, VA.
The activities of the faculty at James Madison University during the fall term of the academic year 1978-79 are described. Full-time instructional faculty, part-time faculty involved in resident instruction, administrators and classified employees who taught at least one course, and graduate teaching assistants were surveyed. Information was collected concerning class hours, class preparation, instructional activities, research and scholarly activities, public service activities, academic support, student support, and institutional support. Survey results for 1972 through 1978 are summarized and analyzed. The survey procedure is discussed and changes in the questionnaire since 1972 are detailed. It is concluded that although the survey population has changed over the years, the activities of University faculty have remained quite constant since 1972. The survey results are tabulated and the questionnaire is included. (SF)
