Employee Turnover in Christian College/University Admissions
Dougherty, Kevin D.; Andrews, Megan
Christian Higher Education, v6 n1 p29-51 Jan 2007
Few campus offices bear the weight of organizational health and vitality more directly than college and university admissions offices. This is particularly true for Christian colleges and universities where annual operating budgets depend largely on student tuition dollars. The purpose of the research reported in this paper was to explore rates and reasons for employee turnover in Christian college/university admissions. Data come from 2002-2005 annual membership directories of the North American Coalition for Christian Admissions Professionals (NACCAP) supplemented by a survey of former admissions staff from NACCAP member schools. During this five-year period, nearly half of the NACCAP workforce turned over and most did so within three years on the job. Turnover varied by position type, school size, and region, with gender as a significant mediating factor. Survey respondents indicate that their time in Christian college/university admissions has lasting effects on them, even though other jobs, family, or advancement opportunities spur exit from the profession.
