Study of System Staffing 1993, 1995 & 1997. Commission Special Study, Domain 2.
Butler, Steven W.; Henry, Thomas C.
This study examined staffing patterns, staff salaries, and credit enrollments in the Wyoming Community College System. Data for this study were derived from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data Systems (IPEDS) Fall 1993, 1995, and 1997 Staff Surveys compiled by the National Center for Educational Statistics (NCES). Surveys were conducted in odd-numbered years and collected information by racial/ethnic status, sex, primary occupational activity, and salary intervals. It was found that Total College System FTE employee staffing levels gained 2.5% over the five-year period. The combined FTE Administrative/Professional category gained 13.3%. System-wide, no category declined in FTE numbers. Part-time employees increased 21% over the period while full-time employees decreased slightly (-1.4%). The largest categorical reduction in full-time staff took place in Faculty. There was a corresponding increase in part-time faculty of 22.3%. As a system, the Administrative/Professional category saw the largest increase in part-time employees (81%). Casper College reported the largest change in part-time faculty with a 1,875% increase. The findings in this study of system staffing imply that the colleges of the System might collectively examine staffing trends within the context of student enrollments. Contains 15 figures and 3 tables. (JJL)
