Vital, successful, and happy faculty should be at the core of any theatre department or institution that has a mission to provide students with exceptional academic and experiential opportunities. Earlier this year, a national survey was conducted and the questions solicited feedback about several domains that were found to be important to faculty job satisfaction by previous studies. These included faculty perceptions of criteria for tenure and promotion, informal and formal mentoring, campus climate, professional networking, and professional development. The study aims to analyze the intrinsic and the extrinsic factors that influence theatre faculty’s sense of belonging and job satisfaction. While the more detailed regression analyses of the data and examination of the qualitative comments and suggestions are forthcoming, we believe this report will be helpful in informing departmental policies and initiatives, and we encourage you to share it with your colleagues and programs.
