Higher Education continues to rely on adjunct faculty as most of their teaching force, and largely ignores their levels of satisfaction. As faculty have the most direct line to students on a regular basis, it should be determined if adjunct faculty are satisfied with various aspects of their jobs. Additionally, to aid the large adjunct faculty teaching force, higher education institutions are implementing centralized curriculum at higher rates particularly in online courses. These courses may erode instructional autonomy which may negatively influence faculty satisfaction. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to determine if the use of centralized curriculum erodes instructional autonomy and if that leads to less satisfied faculty.
