In the 2006 legislative session, a bill was passed, SB06-144, directing higher education institutions to study the need for and cost of providing health insurance benefits to instructors. In addition to health insurance, other topics related to the terms and conditions of employment for instructors were discussed during the various stages of testimony on this bill. As a result, the Colorado Community College System has developed a survey as a tool for collecting information regarding the employment of instructors across the community college system.
In order to effectively analyze this issue and prepare an adequate report for the general assembly, we need your help in completing our on-line survey. The survey data will also be a valuable tool for the administration of CCCS, which will allow for informed decision making regarding the employment terms and conditions of instructors, valuable and significant contributors to assisting CCCS achieve its educational mission.
Please complete the survey on-line no later than November 15, 2006 at the following link on the Colorado Community College System web page: www.cccs.edu/InstructorSurvey
The final report will be available on-line at www.cccs.edu to anyone who is interested in the compiled results from this survey. Thank you for your time and effort in responding to this survey.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to send an e-mail to CCCS.Instructors@cccs.edu.
