Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate and clarify the nature and form of faculty scholarship. The two major stages of the study involved: (1) specification of the content domain of faculty scholarship, and (2) identification of the dimensions of faculty scholarship and exploration of relationships between these dimensions and other variables. The first stage of the study, in which the content domain of faculty scholarship was specified, involved the participation of 50 faculty members from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Participants nominated individuals they considered scholarly, and described the characteristics that prompted them to consider their nominees scholarly. Through these descriptions, an extensive listing of the components of scholarship was formulated.
