Funded Research of Faculty at 2-Year Institutions by Geographic Locations and Funding Sources
Boyer, Patricia
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v31 n7 p575-582 Jul 2007
Little is known about how faculty at 2-year institutions secure grants. Although the mission of community colleges focuses more on teaching than research, many of the faculty desire to pursue grants and some actually engage in this activity. The purpose of this research was to better understand faculty at 2-year institutions regarding several issues: (a) the faculty profile for those who are securing grants, (b) the organization of their funding sources, and (c) the geographical area in which the faculty reside. The faculty in this study were located in 7 geographical areas and received funds from 7 different funding sources. (Contains 3 tables.)
