"I Couldn't Wait to Leave the Toxic Environment": A Mixed Methods Study of Women Faculty Satisfaction and Departure from One Research Institution
Gardner, Susan K.
NASPA Journal About Women in Higher Education, v5 n1 p71-95 Feb 2012
A mixed methods analysis of women faculty departure at one research institution was conducted using Hagedorn's model of faculty job satisfaction. Findings from an institution-wide survey and interviews with women faculty who had left the institution resulted in several themes: (a) a lack of resources to support faculty work, (b) a lack of consistent and quality leadership, (c) a lack of work-life balance policies and an environment to support them, and (d) overall negative institutional and departmental environments. These findings are discussed in relation to Hagedorn's model as are implications for policy, practice, and future research. (Contains 3 tables.)
