Perceived Organizational Support
Quality of Exchange Relationships
The use of contingent workers has increased in recent years, particularly within the field of higher education. In addition to the use of adjuncts to meet fluctuating demands, many universities have increased the number of full-time faculty not on the tenure-track. Relationships between job satisfaction, perceived organizational support, and quality of exchange relationships among tenured, tenure-track, and contingent faculty were examined. Traditional faculty members reported higher levels of satisfaction and organizational support, however there were few differences in perceptions of the quality of working relationships.
