Abstract

The systemic changes facing postsecondary institutions today pose a threatto the quality of academic programs unless new faculty can be successfullyattracted and retained. To be more competitive in the recruitment and retention of faculty, a better understanding is needed of the adjustment experiences of newly hired faculty. Our study examined the adjustment of new hires at the point of entry into their institutions using research productivityas one indicator of adaptation. It was expected that perceived personal control, age, gender, and type of institution would relate to research productivity. At the beginning of their first and second year, newly hired faculty in three different types of postsecondary institutions responded to a comprehensive questionnaire concerning their initial adjustment experiences. Apath analysis indicated both direct and indirect linkages between the independent variables of interest and research productivity. Substantial directpaths were found between the institution type and research productivity, specifically for the research 1 and liberal arts/comprehensive institutions,and to a lesser degree, between age and research productivity. Age, the research 1 university, and the liberal arts/comprehensive universities had direct effects on two measures of perceived control and were linked indirectly to research productivity via perceived control. Perceived control resulting from the personal qualities of the faculty members was instrumental to research productivity, whereas perceived control resulting from activities initiated by faculty members were not related to productivity. Surprisingly,gender was not related to research productivity through either direct or indirect paths. If the adjustment of newly hired faculty is viewed in terms of research productivity, then these results suggest that perceived control, the milieu of research-oriented institutions. and age (to a limited extent), are important predictors of faculty performance.
