Administrative Hierarchy and Faculty Work: Examining Faculty Satisfaction with Academic Leadership
Miller, Michael T.; Mamiseishvili, Ketevan; Lee, Donghun
Journal of Academic Administration in Higher Education, v12 n1 p1-7 Spr 2016
Academic administrators at all levels have some impact on the performance of faculty members, yet each level of administration may interact differently with faculty. Literature has strongly supported the notion that department chairs, deans, and provosts can positively influence the performance and livelihood of faculty members. This study was designed to explore faculty satisfaction with each level of academic administration making use of the 2014 survey data collected by the Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE) at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. We found that faculty members at research universities were more satisfied with leadership at the departmental than college or institutional levels. Furthermore, assistant professors were significantly more satisfied with academic leadership at all levels than both associate and full professors.
