Climate Survey - Service

Service

UNT faculty members understand that service activities and participation in governance are an important part of their job.  Almost everyone (96.6%) believes that at least some of their service is recognized by their chair or colleagues.  Only half of the faculty members agree or strongly agree that committee assignments are made fairly, with full professors reporting more recognition and reward for their service than those of other ranks.  Male faculty members perceive committee assignments are made more fairly and rewarded more than their female counterparts.  More than half of faculty members believe they are doing more service than others at the same rank.  Assistant professors scored lower on several items, which is likely a result of efforts to protect them from service activities that might interfere with their research and teaching on the way to tenure and promotion.
