Summary

To examine the 2-year college environment, 1969-70 catalogs for 94 2-year colleges were studied. The number of faculty, courses, and degrees in various fields were classified into six types--Realistic, Intellectual, Social, Conventional, Artistic, and Enterprising--based on Holland's theory of vocational choice. The resulting profiles were analyzed in terms of three components: elevation, scatter, and shape. The faculty and curriculum profile are closely tied to psychological theory, are independent of student characteristics, appear to reveal differences among colleges in relative emphasis on subject matter areas, and are meaningfully related to other measures of the college environment. Therefore, such profiles appear promising for the study of 2-year college environments, and provide a common framework for studying 2-year and 4-year colleges. (Author/CA)
