Community College Enterprise, v22 n2 p29-41 Fall 2016
This study aimed: (a) to determine the prevalence of faculty rank among two-year colleges in the United States; (b) to identify the criteria used to determine faculty rank upon initial employment for transfer and vocational faculty; (c) to identify the criteria used to determine promotion for transfer and vocational faculty; and (d) to determine if there were differences in criteria between transfer faculty and vocational faculty at initial appointment and subsequent promotion. Additionally, the study sought to determine the prevalence of collective bargaining and tenure among colleges with faculty rank and the currency of the policies about faculty promotion.
