THE WAY IN WHICH THE ORGANIZATION OF COLLEGE DEPARTMENTS AFFECTS THE PERFORMANCE AND ATTITUDES OF COLLEGE FACULTY.
BACHMAN, JERALD G.
THE EFFECTS OF ORGANIZATIONAL CHARACTERISTICS OF ACADEMIC DEPARTMENTS ON THE PERFORMANCE AND ATTITUDES OF COLLEGE FACULTY MEMBERS WERE STUDIED. CAUSES FOR FACULTY SATISFACTION WITH THEIR CHAIRMAN, GENERAL JOB SATISFACTION, AND LOYALTY TO THE COLLEGE WERE SOUGHT. QUESTIONNAIRES WERE RECEIVED FROM 444 FACULTY MEMBERS IN 12 LIBERAL ARTS COLLEGES. RELATIONSHIPS WERE PREDICTED ON THE BASIS OF SIMILAR RESEARCH, BUT NO RELATIONSHIPS WERE SUBSTANTIATED WHEN EXPERIMENTAL AND CONTROL DATA WERE CORRELATED. THE STUDY WAS EXTENDED TO THE CLARITY OF ORGANIZATIONAL GOALS IN COLLEGE. CLARITY WAS FOUND RELATED TO LACK OF CONFLICT BETWEEN FACULTY AND OFFICIALS AND TO THE BASES OF POWER ATTRIBUTED TO DEPARTMENTAL DEANS. THREE SEPARATE TOPICS WERE DISCUSSED AND SUMMARIZED IN THE REPORT--(1) ACADEMIC DEPARTMENTS, (2) ORGANIZATIONAL GOALS AND THEIR CLARITY, AND (3) DETERMINANTS OF CLARITY IN ORGANIZATIONAL GOALS. (RS)
