Abstract: We analyzed the extent to which the number and percentage of Texas community college female faculty members, full-time and part-time, had changed from the 2000 academic year through the 2008 academic year. The number and percentage of female faculty members employed full-time at Texas community colleges showed statistically significant increases across this 9-year time period. By the 2008 academic year, females constituted more than half of the Texas community college faculty members. Similar findings were present for part-time faculty employment. Implications of these findings for faculty diversity and the enrollment of female students in community colleges are discussed.
