Faculty Participation in Voluntary Consortia.
Kaufman, Norman
This paper reports on a study of faculty participation in voluntary higher education consortia. The study determined the extent to which faculty participate in the activities and programs of voluntary consortia and analyzed the incentives and rewards offered to faculty to induce their participation. The levels of faculty participation were found to be uniformly low in all but a few consortia. Faculty perceived a lack of positive incentives to be responsible for their low participation. Attitudes of administrators, lack of release time or compensation, and general organizational climate were cited most often by faculty as negative factors. Suggestions for improving faculty participation are included. (Author)
