Available Special Edueation Faculty Positions in Higher Education Journal Article uri icon



  • In this article we summarize a study designed to assess the status of available IHE special education faculty positions from 1984-88 and projected faculty needs from 1989-94. Two hundred eighty-one IHEs reported 216 available positions in special education for 1984-88. Two hundred ninety-eight positions were projected by 209 IHEs for 1989-94. Results suggest that many of the IHE positions were filled by individuals already in higher education, creating a situation in which need shifts from institution to institution. Also, a substantial number of vacancies are filled by individuals previously employed at SEAs or LEAS. These findings suggest that a substantial number of potential applicants (i.e., supply) for IHE special education positions includes existing faculty and SEA/LEA personnel and, to a lesser degree, doctoral graduates. Implications for future research are discussed
