Abstract: This paper investigates perceptual differences between international faculty and their US-born counterparts in job satisfaction, engagement with peers and administrators in teaching, research, and service, and their perception of administration's support. While international faculty felt equally committed to their job, they were less satisfied with their current position, less likely to feel valued by colleagues and less likely to agree that they had a good working relationship with their colleagues. They also felt they were the least supported group on campus even when controlling for race and gender. The study's focus was one comprehensive regional institution. Given that job satisfaction is related to motivation, productivity, and commitment to the organisation, the findings of this study point to the need for the institution to include an international component in its diversity efforts.
