Teaching, Research, and Service: Are These Role Functions Satisfying to Venezuelan Faculty Women?
Serafin, Ana Gil
This study examined the job satisfaction of female Venezuelan faculty members in their teaching, research and service functions. Using the Faculty Satisfaction Questionnaire, the study compared the responses of 107 full-time males and 100 full-time females at seven Venezuelan teacher colleges. Findings revealed: (1) that teaching as a role function in academia satisfies full-time women as well as men; (2) that research satisfaction differences between female and male faculty were not significant; and (3) that service satisfaction in female faculty did not differ from males. This contradicts the common belief that teaching is a primary role for female faculty and that research is more satisfying to male faculty. Included are four tables and 20 references. (JB)
