Linnell, Robert H.; Marsh, Herbert W.
Policy questions regarding activities for which university faculty, administrators, and professional staff might derive additional income were examined in four mail surveys along with the impact of those activities on the individuals, the university, and society. Some of the activities considered include overload teaching, research, consulting, part-time employment, and the rights to intellectual properties that may result from either load or "overload" work. The four mail surveys included the following: (1) the Planning Survey, designed to identify major policy problems; (2) a survey sent to statewide coordinating agencies, university central offices, and community college system offices to determine the responsibility of the agencies for establishing policies, and to evaluate the current status of each policy area; (3) a survey of private foundations that assessed the guidelines given to institutions receiving grants regarding salary and property rights for inventions and educational materials; and (4) a survey sent to higher education associations and professional associations requesting information of the involvement of the organization in establishing ethical codes directly or indirectly for their members or other agencies, and information on their use of and payment for part-time services of faculty or staff.
