Faculty Attitudes for Changing a University's Core and Structure

, , ,

International Journal of Higher Education Volume 5, Number 2, ISSN 1927-6044


America's universities and colleges are examining additional ways to raise student enrollment following government reductions in educational funding. Faculty were surveyed regarding their opinions of an administrative proposal to change the status of their commuter university, a school without any on-campus student housing, from teaching traditional semester length courses to predominately online and compressed courses. Results indicated that although younger faculty were willing to teach lower level courses online, most faculty members were resistant to teaching upper level online and compressed courses. Moreover, associate professors agreed teaching compressed courses would make it more difficult both to recruit new faculty and pursue promotion.
