Summary

This paper reports the results of a study designed to answer questions regarding job satisfaction among two-year college faculty and its relationship to common demographic variables. Respondents to a nationwide survey of 1,493 humanities faculty and 505 non-humanities faculty in 156 two-year colleges were grouped into high, medium, or low satisfaction groups, based on responses to certain questionnaire items which allowed construction of a Satisfaction Index. Among the findings of the study with regard to humanities faculty were: (1) ethnicity and satisfaction seem unrelated, although age is related; (2) sex has little bearing on degree of satisfaction; (3) very little difference exists between full- and part-time faculty relative to satisfaction; and (4) more members of high satisfaction groups are found in public colleges, fewer in private institutions. Study findings with regard to non-humanities faculty are also reported and discussed. It is suggested that the construct of satisfaction is a function of the person (personality correlate) as much or perhaps to a greater degree than it is a reaction to the work place (situational response). A review of the literature on job satisfaction and a bibliography are included. (Author/JDS)
