A certain amount of turnover is necessary and healthy for an organization. However, too many temporary replacements until a faculty position can be filled may signal problems within the school. Issues concerning the total environment, problems with tenure processes may disrupt the efficient administration of a School system. It may also affect the attitudes and academic performance of the students.


This study looked into the attitudes of TIPQC Industrial Engineering students regarding the frequent turnover of its Industrial Engineering Faculty and how it affected the students’ academic performance during the school year 2005 – 2006.


Respondents of the study were sixty six (66) Industrial Engineering students from third, fourth and fifth year levels, who were selected randomly. The instrument used was a twelve-item survey questionnaire, which was followed by series of unstructured interviews.  Further analysis were also conducted to determine the relationships of the responses of the students regarding their attitudes on the frequent turnover of IE Faculty as regards to their academic grades. Each of the twelve-item questionnaires was analyzed in the study.
