Covid-19 Impact on Faculty Research Productivity

9 pagesPublished: December 11, 2023


The response of academic institutions to Covid-19 impacted faculty in numerous ways including teaching, service, and research productivity. Thus, this research seeks to determine the United States (US). Construction faculty perceptions of Covid-19 impacts to their research. This research targeted group was US academic institutions members of the Associated Schools of Construction (ASC) grouped according to their Carnegie Institutional Classification. It was hypothesized that research of faculty in doctoral universities with very high research activity (R1) according to the Carnegie Classification would be more broadly impacted. To evaluate this hypothesis, a non-experimental correlational research approach was implemented using an online survey instrument to collect data. The data collected correspond to 109 construction educators within the US. The elements considered to impact faculty research in this study include: average teaching load, online learning environment (OLE) impact on research and service, factors affecting research productivity, overall institutional support and support to OLE. Based on the data analysis, it was determined that differences in the institutions’ Carnegie Classification does not have an effect on the faculty perceptions of Covid-19 impacts, as faculty from all types of classifications indicated comparable impacts on research, service and teaching.
