Faculty Views of the University's Organizational Legitimacy. A Case Study.
Marshall, R. Stephen
By using a scoring device, a university's faculty was found to be divided according to contentment or discontentment with the institution's organizational climate. The groups are shown to have held different perceptions of several aspects of university life. By linking the findings to a framework derived from organizational theory, the possible consequences of the faculty's attitudinal split are discussed. One of the possibilities is that universities may tend toward organizational rigidity in response to faculty discontent. It is suggested that further study be undertaken, especially through comparison of institutions. The data also suggest that common assumptions about faculty participation norms and antipathy toward administration be reexamined. (Author/MSE)
