Let's denote:

P = number of professors

L = number of lecturers

We know:

P + L = 228 (total faculty members)

P = 5 * L (5 professors for every 14 lecturers)

Substituting the second equation into the first:

5 * L + L = 228

6 * L = 228

L = 228 / 6

L = 38

Now, we can find the number of professors:

P = 5 * L

P = 5 * 38

P = 190

Therefore, the community college employs:

190 professors

38 lecturers

In total, they employ 228 faculty members.
