Faculty Experiences and Satisfaction with Academic Freedom
Barger, Becky M.
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, The University of Toledo
An original questionnaire concerning academic freedom policies and practices was created and mailed to 1,264 faculty members from 316 private baccalaureate colleges and universities. There is a lack of empirical research on faculty satisfaction with academic freedom policies and practices. The variables under investigation included faculty members' demographics, work attributes, experiences with academic freedom, and institutional characteristics, as well as policies and practices with regard to academic freedom. A total of 331 faculty members completed and submitted the questionnaire. Out of the 56 variables studied, a total of 17 variables emerged as significant predictors of faculty satisfaction with academic freedom.
