An Examination of the Factors That Shape the Engagement of Faculty Members and Academic Staff
Lunsford, Crystal G.; Omae, Hilda Nyougo
Innovative Higher Education, v36 n5 p343-358 Nov 2011
In this article we discuss some of the factors that influence how faculty members and academic staff at Michigan State University connect their scholarly activities to external audiences. Logistic regression was used to analyze data collected using an institutional-wide survey. Findings reveal that appointment type, discipline, and demographic attributes influence the type of engaged activities--teaching, research, and service--in which faculty members and academic staff are involved. We discuss the implications for practice and research.
