MANOVA (Multivariate analysis of variance) was used to investigate the effect of different positions on satisfaction, Main result of MANOVA analysis indicated that academicians were more satisfied about academical and social satisfaction more than students and alumni. Moreover, cause and effect diagrams were suggested to identify causes of satisfaction state.
