  • As intercollegiate athletics continue to evolve, there continue to be calls for reform from faculty on both the campus and national levels. Scholarly inquires into faculty perceptions and satisfaction levels pertaining to intercollegiate athletics have provided valuable insight into the variation between campuses as study results have not been uniform (Putler & Wolfe, 1999). With differing beliefs, each faculty-led reform group has a different agenda and set of guiding principles. The purpose of this study is to examine all UNC-CH employees' satisfaction with intercollegiate athletics at UNC-CH. This will extend the 2006 Knight Commission sponsored study, Faculty Perceptions of Intercollegiate Athletics: A National Study of Faculty at NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) Institutions to gather preliminary data using a survey for all UNC- CH employees pertaining specifically to satisfaction with academics, governance, and finance of athletics at UNC-CH. In order to guide the examination of employee satisfaction of intercollegiate athletics at UNC-CH, this study was framed utilizing three philosophical viewpoints, which describe basic faculty issues and assumptions that divide institutional reformers and reform groups within Division I institutions across the country (Sack, 2009). The presentation will discuss the findings of this study.
