This study makes a distinct contribution to the departure literature by examining the psychological contracts and work expectations…

Prior scholarship offers that queer-spectrum and trans-spectrum faculty often experience hostile and uninviting institutional climates (Bilimoria & Stewart, 2009; Rankin, 2003; Sears, 2002). The results of a 2010 study (Rankin, Weber, Blumenfeld, & Frazer, 2010) suggest that these experiences may lead lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender,…

O'Meara, KerryAnn; Lennartz, Courtney Jo; Kuvaeva, Alexandra; Jaeger, Audrey; Misra, Joya – Journal of Higher Education, 2019
For decades, national surveys have shown faculty report high levels of dissatisfaction with the distribution of labor in their departments, especially women and underrepresented minority faculty.

National surveys confirm that…

To this date, research on the interplay between organisational structure/managerial and organisational value/psychological elements which impact on educational quality is scarce and fragmented.

The purpose of the architectural design studio is that students learn to think and act like designers. However, communication between teachers and students seems to be problematic.
