RESULTS AND FINDINGS
This section reports the results of the questionnaire phase of the research project
and of the responses to the interview phase with tenured and tenure-track faculty
members in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences at Angelo State University. In

by faculty members at a Master's I university is presented with a comparison to Ellis'
