Report on the Results of the 1999 Faculty Institutional Survey.
The Faculty Institutional Survey was conducted in 1999 to assess the opinions and satisfaction of members of the Kapiolani Community College faculty. In addition to biographical information, the survey includes satisfaction questions divided into nine sections: academic quality, facilities and equipment, faculty involvement, leadership, personnel policies, professional climate, student characteristics, support services, and overall satisfaction. All questions were scored on a scale of 1 to 4, where 1 represents "very dissatisfied" and 4 represents "very satisfied." The response rate was 39.6 percent. Sixty-five percent of the respondents were female and eighty-four percent were full-time. Responses were categorized by discipline: Business Education, Food Service and Hospitality Education (FSHE), Health, Nursing, and Liberal Arts. The total average rating from the entire survey was 2.70. FSHE and Nursing faculty perceived the institution more favorably than other faculty, and Business Education faculty perceived it the least favorably. There was no difference between full- and part-time faculty in terms of satisfaction, although satisfaction decreased with years of employment. Faculty were most satisfied with academic quality (2.92) and support services (2.91) and least satisfied with student characteristics (2.35) and personnel policies (2.43). Total faculty satisfaction was lower than in previous surveys from 1991, 1993, and 1996. Report sections include: executive summary, background, results, and longitudinal comparison. Appendices contain the survey form, statistics, and respondents' comments. (Contains 9 tables and 22 figures.) (RDG)
