The purpose of this study was to investigate changes in full-time faculty at the Florida Community College System (FCCS) between 1994 and 1998. During this period, the number of headcount students served by the FCCS declined. The total number of instructional faculty declined from 4,743 in 1994 to 4,586 in 1998, a drop of 3 percent. The number of male instructors declined eight percent and the number of female instructors increased by two percent. By fall 1998, the male/female ratio had changed from 52.5%/47.5% to 50.1%/49.9%. The number of black instructors declined from 463 to 437, a drop of six percent. Hispanic instructors increased from 267 to 290, a gain of nine percent. Instructors classified as "other," including Asians and Native Americans, increased by eleven percent. There was a larger decline in continuing contract faculty than in faculty as a whole. (Contains 15 tables. Tables present data for total instructional faculty and faculty on continuing contract by ethnicity (White, Black, Hispanic, and Other) and gender). (RDG)
