What Is Going on in Physical Education and Athletics in Junior and Community Colleges Today.
Stier, William F., Jr.
A national investigation was conducted in 1983 which sought to determine the status of physical education faculty in two year institutions of higher education. A survey instrument was developed and mailed to 300 randomly selected two year colleges within the United States. The mailing generated a usable response of 174 questionnaires. This report provides information on: (1) characteristics of the sample population; (2) curricular offerings in departments of physical education, health, and recreation; (3) faculty status (full or part-time, number of years of teaching experiences, male-female ratio); (4) degree status of department head or chairperson; (5) teaching and coaching experience; (6) departmental evaluation techniques; (7) faculty workload responsibilities; (8) tenure; (9) organizational structure of the physical education department; (10) rank order of physical activities offered by the department; (11) intramural activities; and (12) athletic facilities. Recommendations are made for further research. (JD)
