Factors Related to Career Enhancement Among Tenured and Non-tenured Faculty.
Lowe, James D., Jr.; Anderson, Douglas
Using a questionnaire designed to elicit information on factors relating to career enhancement, 438 faculty members of departments of psychology in the southeastern United States were questioned concerning: major area of expertise; rank; tenure status; teaching load; opportunities for summer teaching; general tenure requirements; relationship of personal and directed student research to tenure, promotion, salary increases, and load reduction; number of publications in refereed journals; number of papers presented at professional meetings; recency of publications and paper presentations; availability of research equipment, space, and funds for personal and student research; availability of sabbatical leave; breakdown of workload; and major incentives for active programs of personal research. The response rate was 60 percent. Results are summarized in tabular form to permit comparison of the responses of faculty 40 years or older with seven or more years of teaching with the responses of younger, less-experienced, tenured and non- tenured faculty. Little narrative analysis is supplied. (Author/MSE)
