A Snapshot of Organizational Climate: Perceptions of Extension Faculty
Tower, Leslie E.; Bowen, Elaine; Alkadry, Mohamad G.
Journal of Extension, v49 n5 Article 5FEA1 Oct 2011
This article provides a snapshot of the perceptions of workplace climate of Extension faculty at a land-grant, research-high activity university, compared with the perceptions of non-Extension faculty at the same university. An online survey was conducted with a validated instrument. The response rate for university faculty was 44% (968); the response rate for Extension was 77% (126). Perceptions of the workplace climate were in the high-to-moderate range. Extension faculty appeared to view campus climate more favorably than traditional faculty. This article calls attention to the benefits of assessing an organization's climate. (Contains 5 tables.)
