TCCTA has conducted a new survey of community colleges, asking schools to report how they rank faculty. It's a complicated matter, as colleges treat this subject in a variety of ways. Some institutions follow what might be called a university model, with separate categories for assistant, associate, and full professors. Other schools don't rank faculty at all, labeling all teachers as instructors. Many fall in between these two approaches.
Not all schools responded to the survey, but a quick perusal can provide a nice snapshot of the current reality in Texas. Here's the link.
The new information will accompany the forthcoming annual TCCTA survey of faculty salaries.
