Summary
This study is a replication of a part of the 1968-1969 survey of college and university faculty conducted by the American Council of Education (ACE) and the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education. In order to reflect the many significant changes in American education since the initial study, this reassessment was undertaken during the 1972-1973 academic year. Included in the sample were teaching faculty from 78 universities, 181 four-year colleges, and 42 junior or community colleges, with faculty size ranging from fewer than 20 to approximately 4,500. The data collection includes information on the faculty surveyed, such as work history, number and type of academic degrees, description of current position (e.g., tenure status, hours per week spent teaching, current funders for scholarly work, and number of graduate and undergraduate students enrolled in current courses), work roles (e.g., department chairmanships, faculty-wide appointments, and professional activities, such as consulting work, works published, and memberships in professional associations), current practices and teaching goals, and opinions and attitudes about many aspects of academia (e.g., federal aid for college students, minority hiring practices, and current working conditions). Additional information includes each respondent's single most outstanding professional accomplishment or achievement. Demographic data include age, education, employment, gender, income, race, and marital status.... Cf.: http://dx.doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR07914
