dc.description.abstract This study investigated the relationships of principal grit, teacher trust in the principal, and faculty organizational commitment. Grit is perseverance and passion for long-term goals. Organizational Commitment is an individual's ability to identify with an organization and experience satisfaction from current job experiences. Trust in the Principal is believing the principal will use his/her position to create a safe environment for students and faculty. The behaviors displayed by the principal should promote a norm of reciprocity where trust and commitment are exchanged for grit. This study utilized data from 42 schools, 42 principals, and 701 teachers within a convenient sample. Three reliable instruments were used in this study: Grit-S, Omnibus T-scale, Organizational Commitment Scale (OCQ). The first hypothesis of the study tested the relationship of Principal Grit (PG) with Teacher Trust in the Principal (TTITP). The findings for this hypothesis were not supported. PG was not significantly related to TTITP. The second hypothesis of the study tested the relationship of PG with Faculty Organizational Commitment (FOC). The findings for this hypothesis were not supported. PG was not significantly related to FOC. Regression analysis indicated that PG did not predict TTITP or FOC. Socioeconomic status (SES) was not related to or predicted by PG.
