ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, North Carolina State University
Academic leaders of community colleges need to better understand the factors that can lead to job satisfaction or dissatisfaction among foreign-born faculty members. The purpose of the study is to examine foreign-born faculty at community colleges in the United States in relation to intrinsic, extrinsic, demographic, and institutional typology factors affecting job satisfaction. The research methodology will include data from the NSOPF 2004, utilizing the framework of Hagedorn (2000). The sample will be drawn from foreign-born faculty employed at community colleges within the United States, and the results will be analyzed using multiple regression and descriptive statistics. These results will provide chancellors, provosts, presidents, chief academic officers, department heads, deans, and faculty members with a reference source to use when making decisions about budgets, hiring, support staff, and ways to improve institutional climate. Therefore, the findings of this study will be significant because they will show which factors can predict job satisfaction for foreign-born faculty at community colleges.
