Chapter Six: Faculty in the Community College




This chapter focuses on faculty in the community college. Specific attention is given to three areas: (a) faculty demographics (e.g., full time vs. part-time faculty, tenure status, teaching load, degree status, rank, salary, and job satisfaction); (b) faculty preparation and development programs; and (c) the current status of faculty diversity and the benefits of diversification.

When reading this chapter, consider the following questions:

•Do faculty trends affect the overall success of the community college? If so, how? What action should be taken (if any) in addressing the current status of community college faculty?
