Predictors of Organizational Commitment for Faculty and Administrators of a Private Christian University
Schroder, Ralph
Journal of Research on Christian Education, v17 n1 p81-97 2008
Faculty and administrators of a private Christian university responded to measures of overall, intrinsic, and extrinsic job satisfaction as well as organizational and religious commitment. The survey measured responses on a five-point Likert-type scale. Data were statistically analyzed by using descriptive statistics and factor analysis. Results revealed a six-predictor model that explained 55.6% of the variance of organizational commitment for faculty. Significant predictors included organizational policy and administration, work itself, religious commitment, salary, working conditions, and achievement. A five-predictor model explained 70.8% of the variance of organizational commitment for administrators with the following predictors included: growth, religious commitment, responsibility, job security, and relations with students.
