Number of Physics Faculty in Two-Year Colleges: Results from the 2012 Survey of Physics in Two-Year Colleges. Focus On
White, Susan; Chu, Raymond
Statistical Research Center of the American Institute of Physics
In an earlier report, ("Physics Enrollments in Two-Year Colleges," ED547610), Susan White and Raymond Chu examined physics enrollments--both the number of students and the types of classes taught--at the 1,063 two-year college campuses in the US where they believe physics is offered. This "Focus On" considers the faculty members who teach those courses--how many, how many are on one campus, how they are employed (full- or part-time), whether they teach courses other than physics, and how many are women. They begin, however, by considering the place of physics at two-year colleges (TYCs).
