Abstract

A cross-sectional research design was utilized in this study. A sample population of 48 subjects, regardless of age, was selected from a list of 92 full-time faculty members using simple random sampling. The exposed group were the faculty members who have worked for 15 years or more, while the unexposed were those who have worked for less than 15 years. Using an adapted self-administered questionnaire (Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire), data was analyzed using frequency, central tendency, and dispersion. The data revealed a 100% satisfaction rate among faculty members who have worked for less than 15 years (23/23) compared to those have stayed for 15 or more years (88%; 22/25), with a computed prevalence ratio of .88 and a confidence interval of 0.7614-1.0171 at 95% confidence level.There was no significant relationship between length of service and level of satisfaction, with only age, employment status and academic rank regarded as confounders.
