Summary

The research reported in this document is based on the following assertions: (1) that the characteristics of role performance of faculty members that are crucial to the university are systematically related to the orientation of the faculty members as defined by a (a) loyalty to the local institution, and (b) commitment to the profession; (2) that for professionals in any given profession the loyalty to the local institution is a function of the work organization (department) defined by (a) use of professional criteria for evaluation of competence, and (b) the degree of autonomy given the professional; and (3) that for professionals in any given work organization, the degree of professional commitment is a function of the strength of the professional establishment for that profession. Part A of the report discusses the problem, describes the 3 university sites studied, and the response, respondent and departmental characteristics. Part B, Factors in Faculty Orientations, discusses the data collection instruments and procedures, and the findings in terms of (1) loyalty and professional commitment, and (2) loyalty and commitment as functions of department character. Part C discusses orientations and role performance preferences. The objective department classification method, the basic data tables, and the questionnaire are included in the appendix. (AF)
