Celeste Calkins (Decision Support), Michelle Chavez (Academic Assessment), and Vicki Rosser (Educational Psychology and Higher Education) recently published a paper, “Preventing Extra Costs: The Impact of Faculty Satisfaction and Morale” in the International Journal of Educational Research. The paper examined the differences among morale, job satisfaction, worklife, and intent to leave one’s position, institution, or academe of full-time tenured/tenure-track faculty members. Utilizing the constructs of worklife, morale, and satisfaction as predictors, the findings suggest that morale is a stronger predictor for intent to leave one’s position and institution, while satisfaction was a stronger predictor for intent to leave academe.
