This research examined the extent to which elements within Bolman and Deal's (2003) four organizational frameworks impact the job satisfaction of full-time faculty working within the Technical College System of Georgia. A researcher developed survey instrument was made available to all full-time faculty members within the Technical College System of Georgia. A factor analysis coupled with a linear regression analysis found that elements within the structural framework had the greatest impact on full-time faculty job satisfaction followed by elements within the human resources, political, and symbolic frameworks respectively.
