Abstract:
The purpose of this research was to determine to what degree work environment and personal characteristics, rewards and performance contribute to job satisfaction among full-time faculty at all accredited colleges of pharmacy. Accredited colleges of pharmacy were determined by a roster available to the profession. Full-time faculty were identified through a 1979-1980 mailing list provided by the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy and by each individual faculty member as to whether or not he/she was considered full-time faculty by his/her school. Data were collected through a mail questionnaire sent to the overall population of 1962 subjects representing all accredited colleges of pharmacy. Of the 1307 questionnaires returned, 148 were not usable because, in the opinion of the faculty member, he/she did not meet the criteria for inclusion in the study. The return of 1159 usable questionnaires from the remaining 1814 questionnaires yielded a response rate of 63.9 percent. The questionnaire was formulated according to the research questions posed in the study using (1) a modification of the Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire, (2) eleven items from the 1972-73 Quality of Employment Survey, (3) the University of Southern California Faculty Professional Interests Survey, and (4) basic informational data. The data analysis techniques employed consisted of measures of central tendency, Pearson Product-Moment Correlation Coefficients, the chi-square statistic and one-way analysis of variance.
