Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1979 
9 p. 

Los Angeles City College (LACC) catalogs for 1979 and every fifth year preceding 1979 were examined to investigate trends in the numbers and characteristics of faculty during the 50 years of the College's history. Variables included in the study were number of faculty, sex, length of time at the college, and highest degree attained. The study showed that, consistent with day enrollment, LACC faculty experienced its highest growth periods in the late 1960's and 1940's when 129 and 123 faculty members were added, respectively. The lowest growth period was during World War II, when only nine new faculty members were added. Results also indicated that 37% of the 1979 faculty members were women. During the five-year period ending in 1979, 48% of the new teachers hired were women; this was the highest percentage of any five-year period. An examination of degrees held revealed that 17% of the 1979 faculty members had doctorates, a percentage that was higher only in 1954. The study report includes graphs and tables depicting: (1) the number of faculty by sex and year of original employment; (2) the highest degree attained by LACC faculty members; (3) the universities that awarded degrees to the 1979 faculty members; (4) the number of teachers hired during each five-year period; and (5) the percentage of female instructors.
