Abstract

This qualitative study examines how faculty define the key elements within the university work environment that promote their personal sense of organizational fit. Findings show that intellectual stimulation and social-emotional support derived from connections with institutional colleagues are important in establishing a sense of fit. Even more important for some is the institution's capacity to provide structural support that enables them to fulfill their professional ambitions.
