Information is presented on activities that colleges and universities are undertaking to recruit and retain promising young faculty members. Educators were asked to nominate appropriate programs, and certificates of achievement and cash awards were made to 10 of the 115 universities and colleges submitting information. The efforts of the 115 schools are briefly described in terms of the situation of the campus; the innovative idea for recruiting/retaining qualified, young faculty members; and the results of the program. Citations that were read for each institution receiving awards are included. In addition, a sample of the ideas are discussed in six separate chapters, which include a brief statement of the approach and results for each institution. These include the following: creating new job opportunities, developing innovative employment policies, increasing research opportunities, filling faculty positions in engineering, and providing housing incentives for faculty members. Additional ideas include: providing fellowships, sabbaticals, teaching and research assistantships; and offering salary supplements earned by teaching in the summer or during off-hours. For each institution, a contact name, address, and telephone number are supplied. An appendix includes projections and analyses of the employment outlook for faculty. Excerpts are included from the "Report of the Commission on Graduate Study at the University of Chicago," including three informative charts, one from a report by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and two from a report by William Bowen in his president's report for Princeton University.
