Faculty Satisfaction with Institutional Support as a Complex Concept: Collegiality, Workload, Autonomy.

Faculty Satisfaction with Institutional Support as a Complex Concept: Collegiality, Workload, Autonomy.

Authors: Pollicino, Elizabeth A. 1996

This paper assesses public and private, four-year college or university faculty satisfaction in the context of the complexity of satisfaction and the importance of the interaction between faculty professional values or expectations and institutional values. Satisfaction is defined as the extent to which faculty perceive that the institution provides a climate ensuring professional autonomy and activity commensurate with specialized expertise. Data were obtained from the 19-item Likert-type scale used on the National Survey of Postsecondary Faculty, 1988; a parallel analysis was also performed to provide additional confirmation of results. Mission was classified by four of the Carnegie categories for baccalaureate-granting institutions: research, doctoral, comprehensive, and liberal arts. The most noteworthy results center around the complexity of satisfaction and the need for congruence of institutional mission and individual goals. A principal components analysis was conducted for items reflecting satisfaction that yielded three distinct factors associated with satisfaction: collegiality, workload, and autonomy. Analysis of variance procedures determined that there is a significant effect of mission on satisfaction with collegiality and workload but not with autonomy. Findings confirm the complexity of faculty satisfaction based on a very strong need for collegiality between faculty and between faculty and administration. Implications for research include the challenge to expand the exploration of faculty satisfaction by including the influence of personal professional variables, such as tenure status and academic discipline.

Bioinformatics: New Technology Models for Research, Education, and Service

Bioinformatics: New Technology Models for Research, Education, and Service

Bioinformatics applies principles of information sciences and technologies to complex life sciences data. Life sciences research and education are increasingly dependent on bioinformatics and advanced information technologies in order to support their experimental approaches. This research bulletin provides an overview of the opportunities, challenges, and strategies for information technology organizations to optimally facilitate bioinformatics research and broader life sciences development efforts in higher education.

Informatics and Knowledge Management for Faculty Research Data

Informatics and Knowledge Management for Faculty Research Data

This research bulletin describes the results of a study conducted at the University of California, Santa Barbara, into systems and project requirements for informatics in a broad range of scientific fields (including, but not limited to, bioscience fields), along with requirements in the social sciences and humanities. Faculty were interviewed about what has led them to develop informatics systems in support of their research and what factors are at the forefront as they seek to manage large amounts of research data in a decentralized and collaborative environment. The findings, a mix of the expected and unexpected, have laid the groundwork for new proposals in faculty IT support services.
