The Reliance on and Demand for Adjunct Faculty Members in America's Rural, Suburban, and Urban Community Colleges
Charlier, Hara D.; Williams, Mitchell R.
Community College Review, v39 n2 p160-180 Apr 2011
Drawing on a survey of chief academic officers at 347 community colleges nationwide, this study examined the impact of institutional type (rural, suburban, urban) on reliance on and demand for adjunct faculty members. Findings indicated that rural institutions rely less on adjuncts, whereas both rural and urban institutions report high levels of unmet demand within specific disciplines. (Contains 10 tables.)
