Glendale Community Coll., CA. Planning and Research Office.
In preparation for accreditation self studies, Glendale Community College (California) conducted faculty and staff surveys in 1986, 1990, 1997, and 2002. The results of the 2002 administration survey are presented here, along with trend information from previous administrations. Survey forms were distributed to all faculty and staff members employed at the college. The 2002 survey had a response rate of 37%, compared to the 39% response rate for 1997. In 2002, the highest group response rate was 58% for full-time faculty, while the lowest response rate was 28% for part-time faculty. The first section of the survey addressed job satisfaction issues. Respondents used a scale from -2 (highly unsatisfactory) to +2 (highly satisfactory). The most positive responses were for job challenge: about 86% of all respondents gave this category a satisfactory rating. Receiving the least positive responses was the area of opportunity for advancement. Part-time faculty gave this issue the lowest rating (-0.6). The area of benefits package showed high variability in responses, with part-time faculty negative (-0.7), while other employee groups were positive. Section 2 analyzes personal demographic information, Section 3 addresses working environment issues, Section 4 examines campus management, Section 5 looks at educational goals, and Section 6 examines student services.
