Recognition for Outstanding Teachers: A National Study
Andrews, Hans A.; Erwin, John S.
Community College Journal, v74 n2 p36-39 Oct-Nov 2003
Recognition for outstanding faculty should be an ongoing facet of every community college's program to improve instruction. This is still far from the case, however, in a significant number of colleges across the country. The authors conducted a national study of recognition programs for teachers in American community colleges. Chief instructional administrators in 934 community colleges within the American Association of Community College (AACC) membership were surveyed. A total of 633 responses were received for a 67.8% return. Fifty-five percent of administrators reported having recognition programs. Only 19% had similar programs for their part-time faculty. The overriding majority of colleges having faculty recognition programs reported their programs to be successful and accepted by their faculty. A range of rewards were identified and are reported in this article.
