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 104 art instructors included in the total sample of 1,493 full- and part-time faculty. Findings of the survey include: (1) one-fourth indicated that they had been students in community/junior colleges; (2) 89% held their highest degree in art while 20% held their highest degree in education; (3) 60% of the art instructors were males as compared to 67% of the total sample; (4) more male and female art instructors proportionately were older than the total group; (5) 16% claimed to be working toward the master's degree while 11% claimed to be working toward the doctorate; (6) 62% were full-time instructors and 30% were employed in jobs in addition to their teaching positions; (7) over half felt that five years in the future they would desire a faculty position in a four-year college or university, ranking their present position second. Findings concerning attitudes toward students and the humanities, reference group identification, job satisfaction, and preference for further preparation are also reported. For the full survey report, see ED 121 358. (JDS)
