Abstract

The paper evaluates the satisfaction of university teachers. India has the largest higher education system in the world. Teachers are the most important resource in the higher education system. The best of infrastructure and curriculum cannot transform students into better professionals and individuals without dedicated efforts of motivated teachers. Poor employability of graduates is a cause of concern. A motivated teacher can enhance the employability of the graduates by dedicated efforts. Job satisfaction of teachers was studied to identify factors that may motivate the teachers in public and private universities. A survey design was used for the study. Private and public universities in northern part of India were selected for the study. The findings show that teachers in private universities were more satisfied with intrinsic factors whereas teachers in public universities were more satisfied with extrinsic factors.
