Variables Associated With Role Conflict between Career and Family.
Berman, Marilyn R.
Research that attempts to understand the job satisfaction of faculty in higher education has generally focused on full-time teaching faculty. Part-time faculty are responsible for a substantial portion of the total instructional production of the nation's colleges and universities, but to date have been largely unobserved. The job satisfaction and role conflict of full-time and part-time male and female faculty were investigated using the entire teaching faculty at the University of Maryland (College Park campus) as the sample group. Respondents completed the Job-Related Tension Index and a questionnaire containing job satisfaction and role conflict items. Results indicated that part-time faculty expressed greater job satisfaction and less role conflict than full-time faculty. Female faculty experienced greater job dissatisfaction and greater role conflict than male faculty. The most satisfied group was male part-time faculty and the least satisfied group was female full-time faculty. (Author/HLM)
