An Investigation of Part-Time Faculty Commitment to Student Development. ASHE Annual Meeting Paper.
Pisani, Anoush M.; Stott, Nathan
This study examined the factors influencing the commitment of part-time faculty to developmental advising. The study was based on a theoretical framework which suggests that developmental advising is a learning experience that involves interaction of students and faculty members. The data for the study were collected during a 1992 survey of 969 part-time faculty (504 responses) at a midwestern university, with variables characterized as descriptive or attitudinal. The study found that the greatest positive influence on developmental advising was integration of part-time faculty into the department. It was concluded that increasing faculty involvement in developmental advising will enhance the quality of higher education. Variable definitions and scale rankings are defined in the appendix, and results are analyzed and then summarized in two tables, one a correlation matrix and the other listing the regression coefficients.
