Summary

In 1975, the Center for the Study of Community Colleges conducted a national survey of humanities faculty in two-year colleges. This paper summarizes the characteristics of 70 philosophy instructors included in the total sample of 1,493 full- and part-time faculty. Findings of the survey include: (1) males dominated this field (84%) and 100% reported that they were white/Caucasian; (2) one-third had been administrators or instructors in secondary schools while half had been administrators or instructors in a four-year college or university; (3) 31% claimed to be working on the doctorate, most already possessing the master's; (4) 36% neither subscribed to nor read journals within their discipline, while 77% neither subscribed to nor read professional education journals; (5) philosophy instructors rated what they are presently doing as "very attractive" and second only to a faculty position at a four-year college or university; (6) over 90% had not presented papers at regional or national meetings, while over half had not attended such meetings in the three years prior to the survey; and (7) philosophy instructors rated preparation for further formal education as the most important function of a two-year college education. For the full survey report, see ED 121 358. (JDS)
