Russell, Susan H.; And Others
This report provides statistical information on faculty in colleges and universities collected through a national survey conducted in 1987-88 by the National Center for Education Statistics. The data were collected from institutional academic officers, department chairpersons, and faculty members. This report focuses on five topics around which the five chapters are organized: (1) "Patterns of Faculty Separation and Retirement" (full-time regular faculty only); (2) "Faculty Activities and Workload" (workload and time allocation, productivity, and job satisfaction); (3) "Faculty Compensation" (monetary compensation and employee benefits); (4) "Women and Minorities in Higher Education (information on type and control of institution, program area, highest degree, employment status, age, employment experience, workload, compensation, job attitudes); and (5) "Part-Time Faculty in Higher Education" (demographic data, academic background, experience, workload and activities, compensation and benefits, and job attitudes). Each chapter constitutes a report offering background, highlights of the findings, the data tables themselves and a summary. The document also includes over 50 references, and appendixes containing technical notes, standard error tables and the survey instrument. (JB)
