Faculty at Nova Southeastern University Judge the President's Faculty Scholarship Awards: Fall Term 2001.
MacFarland, Thomas W.
Nova Southeastern University has put into place a President's Faculty Scholarship Award Program, which was designed to bring recognition and funding to the University's full-time faculty as they attempt to secure resources in support of research activity. The program was evaluated as viewed by the University's fall term 2001 full-time faculty. Surveys were distributed to all 563 full-time faculty, and responses were returned by 46 faculty members, a response rate of 8.2%. The low response rate means that there is concern that the responding sample may not be representative of the population. Approximately 25% of the respondents had previously submitted a proposal for competition in the President's Faculty Scholarship Award Program, and about the same percentage had submitted proposals to external funding agencies or organizations within the past year. Responses were generally favorable, and 75% of the statements received a modal rating of "strongly agree" or "agree." Only two statements received a modal rating of less than 3. Responses show that respondents want recognition for their research activities, and that the program is one avenue for such recognition. (SLD)
