Supporting Teaching in Research Universities and Teaching Colleges.
Lynch, David M.; Bowker, Lee H.
The viewpoints of graduate deans, continuing education deans, and chief liberal arts academic officers about the relative availability of institutional funds to support teaching and research are compared. Distinctions between research universities and teaching colleges in funding teaching and research activities are also explored, based on the perspective of chief liberal arts academic officers. Data were obtained through three administrator surveys. Graduate deans generally believed that institutions more often provide excellent funding for activities in support of teaching than for activities in support of research, except for research sabbaticals. Continuing education deans and chief liberal arts academic officers believed activities in support of teaching to be generally better funded than activities in support of research, except funding for computers. Research universities appeared to fund research activities better than teaching colleges, but the differences between research universities and teaching colleges were much more limited in supporting teaching-related activities. Data are included on the ratings of the three sets of administrators on funding for various activities in support of teaching and research. (SW)
