Beyond Teaching and Research: Faculty Perceptions of Service Roles at Research Universities
Mamiseishvili, Ketevan; Miller, Michael T.; Lee, Donghun
Innovative Higher Education, v41 n4 p273-285 Aug 2016
Faculty members in higher education institutions frequently have the responsibility of providing service activities to their institutions, professional societies, and external communities. This responsibility, however, generally carries little reward in the workplace and does not play a major role in promotion criteria. For the study we report here we drew upon a sample of 4,400 research university faculty members to explore their satisfaction with service roles by academic rank. Findings showed that mid-career faculty members at the associate professor rank were significantly less satisfied with their service functions, including workload, equity, work balance, recognition, and institutional support, when compared with both assistant and full professors.
