This report uses selected findings from the 1993 National Study of Postsecondary Faculty (NSOPF:93) to examine differences between subgroups of faculty and staff within public 2-year colleges. It compares the backgrounds, teaching methods, and career lives of instructional faculty and staff who vary in terms of (a) age, (b) years of experience in their current jobs, and (c) primary teaching discipline. These comparisons show how those who are relatively new entrants to the teaching ranks at public 2-year colleges may differ from their older and more experienced colleagues. They also describe the instructional faculty and staff at public 2-year colleges as members of disciplinary subcultures.
