Data on Illinois community college faculty and staff characteristics are presented and analyzed in this report for fall 1984. Tables provide statistics on faculty and staff employment classification by college; full-time employment classification by sex and ethnic origin; full-time teaching faculty by highest degree held, age, sex, tenure status, and years of service; years of related work experience of occupational full-time faculty; primary teaching area of full- and part-time faculty; full-time academic support personnel by highest degree held, sex, age, and years of service; and full-time administrative personnel by highest degree held, age, sex, and years of service. Summary findings included the following: (1) although there was little difference in total numbers in the fall terms of 1983 and 1984, a decrease of full-time teaching faculty and academic support personnel occurred; (2) there was a 14% decrease in academic support personnel; (3) most employment classifications except clerical and custodial showed a fairly even distribution of males and females, although more males were employed as administrators and full-time faculty; (4) proportionately more Blacks and fewer Hispanics were employed in community colleges than in the general civilian employed population; (5) faculty characteristics remained fairly stable, with the majority being over 40 years of age, tenured, and employed in their current positions for over 10 years; and (6) increases in faculty numbers occurred in life and physical sciences, and business and management.
