In recent years, the academic position has become one achievement in teaching life for the academic staff in Thailand. From the record of one international college, the number of people requesting the position are increasing and decreasing alternately by an average 14 people a year. Therefore, this research is to investigate the Attitude towards Academic Promotion Request of Academic Staff at a Thai University International College. The research instrument is a questionnaire with closed-ended and open-ended questions using a five- point Likert scale focusing on the general opinion, the related regulations and the barriers. An accidental random sample is employed to select the participants to complete the survey from 110 faculty members who teach at an international college at a Thai university but differ in age, sex, working duration, and position. Later, the data is analyzed by the SPSS program while the open-ended questions are analyzed by using a summative content analysis. The results show that the faculty members have positive attitudes towards academic promotion requests. They think that having an academic title is required, important and one way of being successful. On the other hand, they think that it is complicated, time-consuming and the regulations are often changed.
In addition, for further research, it would be better to expand the findings by interviewing the faculty members to compare those who have the academic title with the ones who do not in order to get more deep information. Also, a study on a specific case would be required.
