dc.description.abstractThis thesis is an exploration of the impact of climate and environmental factors on perceptions of job satisfaction among faculty members of the University of Guelph. A 1997 Morale Survey is used, which was distributed to faculty members at the University of Guelph and yielded 311 responses. The findings of this research indicate that climate does have an impact on job satisfaction of faculty members, and a distinction is made between job satisfaction and job situation. Faculty members are generally dissatisfied with many aspects of their jobs, and job satisfaction has shown a decline. Respect is found to be the most significant determinant of job satisfaction, and faculty members with four to seven years experience and women have slightly lower perceptions of job satisfaction. This study is useful in providing new directions for future research.en_US
