Why don t good faculty pursue administrative positions

Why Don’t Good Faculty Pursue Administrative Positions?

  • Rosenthal, R. (2008). Those who would not serve: Factors influencing community college faculty members’ interest in applying for administrative positions. (Doctoral Dissertation). UC Davis.

Why don t good faculty pursue administrative positions1

Why Don’t Good Faculty Pursue Administrative Positions?

  • Some key findings

    • Three factors were deemed as “somewhat positive.” These factors were:

      • The ability to affect change at a broader level

      • The ability to give back to their department/college

      • Administrative salary levels.

        • Faculty early in their careers distinctly valued the increased administrator’s salary and corresponding retirement benefits but an increased salary level diminished as an incentive with faculty’s years of service.

    • (a) The process by which the governing board reaches the determination shall be developed and agreed upon jointly by representatives of the governing board and the academic senate, and approved by the governing board.
