Universities and external engagement activities: Particular profiles for particular universities?

We use a multilevel regression approach on a complex combined dataset including a survey of 4,400 Norwegian academics and detailed data on the 31 higher education institutions in which they are employed. The aim is to test whether university-level characteristics matter for participation in different kinds of external engagement, when we also control for the influence of individual- and discipline-level factors. We find that university-level variables explain few of the differences in external engagement among academic staff in general.
