Lombardi, Ryan Timothy
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, North Carolina State University
The purpose of this study was to identify the relationship of personal characteristics, job characteristics, and fit on the job satisfaction of mid-level managers in student affairs. The study was quantitative in nature and used the Job Satisfaction Survey (Spector, 1997) and several additional instruments to assess the impact of these variables on job satisfaction. Participants included 845 midlevel managers who are members of NASPA--Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education. This study demonstrated significance in the relationship of gender, race, years in job, level of monetary professional development support, number of student contact hours, person-organization fit, and person-job fit on job satisfaction for this sample. The findings provide current levels of job satisfaction for midlevel managers and contribute to the literature on the multiple variables that impact satisfaction for this population.
