International Survey of Research University Faculty: Job Satisfaction
The report examines the feelings of research university faculty about their level of satisfaction with a broad range of factors and attributes of their current jobs: their relationship with students, colleagues, college and departmental administration; their feelings about prospects for advancement, their level of job security and their hopes for the future. The study also provides data on faculty evaluation of highly specific job features such as health benefits, retirement benefits, salaries, the quality of information technology and office space at the university and much more. Faculty comment on what they like most and least about their academic positions, and whether they would do it all over again.
The 128-page study presents data from a survey of more than 500 international research university faculty from 50+ universities in the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the UK and Ireland.
Data is broken out by many criteria such as faculty academic title, faculty gender, national location of the university, faculty academic discipline, university public/private status, university enrollment size, faculty teaching load and other useful criteria.
