The purpose of this study was to examine the multi relationships among faculty trust, faculty members efficacy and their collective efficacy at selected public universities of Isfahan. Research hypothesis formulated based on study of relations among faculty trust components, faculty efficacy components and their collective efficacy. The research method was descriptive correlational type and the statistical population were consist 1541 faculty members of selected public universities of Isfahan. Statistical sample were chosen by stratified random sampling and 261 faculty members participated in this study. Three gathering information tools including, higher education faculty trust inventory, higher education faculty member efficacy inventory and collective faculty member efficacy inventory were used. The reliability of questionnaires by calculating the Cronbach's alpha coefficients were found to be 0.81, 0.83 and 0.89 respectively. The data were analyzed by using inferential statistics (Multivariate Correlation, Regression and Statistical Equation Modeling).The finding revealed that generally faculty trust and faculty members efficacy have affected the collective efficacy, and there is a latent relationship between faculty trust and faculty member efficacy. Also there is a positive and significant correlation between faculty trust and collective efficacy and faculty member efficacy and collective efficacy. Based on Structural Equation Model, the predictability of collective efficacy level was determined via trust and its components (Gamma= 0.70) and faculty member efficacy (Gamma=0.12). The fit indicators indicated that the research model was relatively good fitting.
Keywords: Trust, Faculty Member Efficacy, Collective Efficacy, University, Structural Equation Model.
