Who Wants to Teach a Diverse Student Body? Community College Missions and the Faculty Search Committee
Magloire, Joël
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v43 n3 p165-172 2019
The increasing diversity of the student bodies of community colleges calls for faculty who are motivated and equipped to educate them. This diversity is a product of the common theme community colleges share in their missions that espouses providing access to education for all members of their local communities. The faculty search committee plays a crucial role in identifying candidates for full-time faculty positions, and further awareness of the implications of their missions for the search process is warranted. The steps that faculty search committees navigate are reconsidered with an eye toward the impact that consideration of the community college mission could have on the process.
