Public Opinion and Images of the American Professoriate.
Swing, Randy L.
Innovative Higher Education, v23 n2 p85-101 Win 1998
Public opinion poll data dating from 1973 suggest a trustworthy and honest professoriate engaged in important work through college teaching, research, and service, but the same surveys show hesitation in granting full academic freedom to teachers holding controversial ideas. The impact of events, such as publication of critical reports, on college faculty image can be determined through longitudinal measures. (Author/MSE)
