Abstract: The third cycle of the NSOPF is being conducted in
response to a continuing need for data on faculty and instructors. The

information about faculty and instructional staff in two ways--allowing
comparisons to be made over time and examining critical issues
surrounding faculty that have developed since the first two studies.
This clearance request covers field test and full scale activities for
the first phase of the study--collection of lists of current faculty
and instructors from sampled postsecondary institutions and a
questionnaire to be filled by institution administrative officials to
provide information about the context of the institution, such as
hiring and promotion practices, policies on benefits, tenure, workload
and salary, etc. A second clearance request will be submitted shortly
covering the faculty survey materials.
