Two-year colleges historically have been teaching institutions with a strong tradition of community and industry involvement (AACJC, 1984). Many universities and four-year colleges operate satellite campuses offering two years of traditional liberal arts, business, engineering or agricultural technology and an associate degree. Faculty at these satellites (community colleges/technical colleges that are part of a larger university) face a special concern when their faculty appointments and accomplishmcnts are evaluated by faculty and administrators at the parent institution for tenure and promotion. Will the faculty at two-year campuses be judged against their own faculty role and mission or against the broader university faculty role that emphasizes teaching upper-level courses, directing and teaching graduate students, and traditional scholarly activity and research?
