The higher education Institutions needs to attract and retain faculty who are qualified and willing to take on new task and responsibility. Institutions are now keen in engaging the faculty in all areas other than teaching. A survey on 662 faculty members representing 10% of the population was done with stratified sampling method with a response rate of 77.8% and with Cronbach Alpha of 0.9. From the study it was found that the faculty engagement between Arts and Science and Engineering and Technology factors differ with regard to type of institution, nature of institution, age and current position. The challenge of today’s Higher Education Institutions is to ensure that its members of the faculty are engaged through innovative management practices.
