Faculty Commitment to Performance Based Funding for Academic Programs
Sandiford, Janice R.; Montoya, Rolando, Jr.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Forum of the Association for Institutional Research (AIR) (45th, San Diego, CA, May 29-Jun 1, 2005)
Higher education institutions receiving public financial support are accountable to the governmental bodies providing their funding. The current accountability movement has generated demands for greater effectiveness and efficiency from public higher education institutions. A recent manifestation of this movement is performance-based funding that links budgetary allocations to the attainment of certain indicators. Using a survey, this study explored intrinsic and extrinsic faculty motivators for compliance with performance-based funding indicators. Indicators closely related to the traditional mission of community colleges showed higher level of faculty commitment. Indicators more oriented to State priorities showed lower level of faculty commitment. (Contains 7 tables and 1 figure.)
