Organizational Trust in Times of Challenge: The Impact on Faculty and Administrators
Hoppes, Cherron R.; Holley, Karri A.
Innovative Higher Education, v39 n3 p201-216 Jun 2014
Higher education institutions have faced increased social, cultural, economic, and political challenges in recent decades. In this study we used the socio-cultural construct of trust to understand how organizational responses to external challenges impact the relationship between faculty members and administrators. Using extensive interviews, observations, and document analysis from a small, private college, we considered how intentionality, a safe campus climate, expertise, participatory governance, and transparency impact stakeholders' perceptions of organizational trust.
