Perceptual Differences between Administrators and Faculty Members on Teaching and Research.
Tang, Thomas Li-Ping; Chamberlain, Mitchell
This study examined, via a 22-item questionnaire, the perceptual differences regarding teaching and research between 134 administrators and 196 faculty members of 6 Tennessee Board of Regents universities. Study results indicated that administrators' attitudes concerning teaching and research were different from those of faculty members on 15 of the items; specifically, while administrators tended to have a strong emphasis that both research and teaching are important, faculty members felt they need to have particular strength in one or the other. Because of this difference in attitudes, administrators' decisions could run contrary to those of faculty regarding such matters as faculty members' tenure and promotion. A table displays the statistical results for 15 variables. (GLR)
