The Effects of Age, Tenure Status, Salary Status and Degree Status on the Responses of College Level Physical Educators to Questions Regarding the Merger Process.
Ansorge, Charles J.; And Others
This investigation was designed to determine the effects of age, salary, academic degree status, and tenure status of college-level physical educators employed either combined or separate departments on their response patterns to various questions regarding the merger process. A stratified sample of faculty employed in either separate departments or combined departments was surveyed by means of questionnaire. The results of the analysis of the returned questionnaires demonstrate that: (1) the age of the respondents in combined departments influenced their perception of areas of disagreement in their department; in separate departments, age influenced their perception regarding outside pressure to merge, their attitude towards merging, and their perception regarding possible conflicts in their department; (2) the salary of the respondents in combined departments influenced their perception of the need to have an equal number of male and female faculty in a combined department; in separate departments the salary earned by the respondents influenced their choice of who should serve as chairperson of a combined department; (3) the academic degree status number of administrators of both sexes in a combined department; and (4) the tenure status of respondents in combined departments influenced how they characterized a merger, their perception of why a merger occurred, and their satisfaction regarding the selection of their chairperson.
