Summary of a Comparison of Select Items from the 1992 and 1995 (Revised) Clarkson College Higher Education Research Institute's Faculty Survey.
Dixon, Terry P.
This study compared selected items from the 1992 and 1995 (Revised) Higher Education Research Institute's Faculty Surveys (HERIFS) for Clarkson College (Nebraska). The HERIFS surveys are designed to collect data concerning faculty at various institutions nationwide for comparative purposes. This study attempted to identify changes between selected items on the college's 1992 and 1995 surveys; to draw conclusions from analysis of the data concerning expected outcomes for Clarkson College faculty; and to provide recommendations to the college for use in decision making. Included are six tables and one chart that contain data relating to number, age, faculty rank, and racial background of respondents, as well as their highest degree earned, degrees they are working toward, and years in present position. Among changes between 1992 and 1995 identified are an aging faculty, fewer faculty at higher academic ranks, a lack of faculty diversity, and fewer faculty pursuing more advanced degrees. Recommendations are given for most facets of the study. (CK)
