As the University academicians are the backbone of the higher education system, they need better guidelines, training sessions, managerial support and they need frequent assessment of job satisfaction and job involvement to ensure their efficiency, motivation and commitment towards work are enhanced. Extensive studies are there about the benefits of job satisfaction and job involvement, but very few in the area of academics.
