dc.description.abstractThere is a clear lack of research relating to the relationship between length of service, job satisfaction and propensity to leave at community colleges. Specifically, this study sought to clarify the relationship between these variables for community college faculty utilizing a correlational methodology. A relationship between length of service, job satisfaction, and propensity to leave could only be detected for part-time faculty. Overall, the study revealed that job satisfaction was inversely related to length of service, and propensity to leave positively related to length of service for part-timers only. This project represents a bold first step into a fertile new area of research.
