College Faculty Job Satisfaction
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this study was to examine job satisfaction of a faculty within a midwestern technical college which has three campuses. Responses to the short form of the Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire were compared to determine whether faculty who have been teaching at the college seven years or less have a lesser degree of general job satisfaction than those who have been teaching longer than seven years at the college. Data was collected through a mailed survey to full and part-time faculty who taught at the college as of February, 1997. The findings of the survey were that both groups, those who taught seven years or less and those who taught longer than seven years at the college, had a high degree of general job satisfaction. Length of teaching at the college was associated with intrinsic satisfaction for males. Males who taught longer than seven years at the college were significantly more satisfied than males who taught seven years or less at the college. Males and females differed significantly in regard to extrinsic satisfaction. Males were significantly less satisfied with extrinsic rewards than females regardless of the length of time that they taught at the college.
