International Faculty: Experiences of Academic Life and Productivity in U.S. Universities
Abstract

Abstract:

Using the 2003 Survey of Doctoral Recipients, we examined satisfaction and research productivity of international faculty as compared to U.S. faculty. The study found that foreign-born, foreign-educated faculty are significantly more productive than their U.S. counterparts after controlling for personal, professional, and institutional variables. No significant difference in the productivity was found between foreign-born U.S.-educated and U.S. faculty. The concentration of international scholars on a campus positively affects productivity for U.S. faculty but not for foreign-born, foreign-educated faculty.
