There is considerable variety in academics' attitudes towards universities' third mission. Research inactive faculty are more sympathetic to third mission goals than even applied research faculty. Women and younger colleagues are more ambivalent about the third mission. Faculty at universities that incentivise teaching tend towards a more positive attitude of the third mission. Private sector experience associates with third mission proclivities, not-for-profit experience associates with opposition.
