I. Instructional Faculty and Class Size
I-1. Please report number of instructional faculty members in each category for Fall 2001.
following definition of instructional faculty is used by the American
Association of University Professors (AAUP) in its annual Faculty
Compensation Survey. Instructional Faculty is defined as those members
of the instructional-research staff whose major regular assignment
is instruction, including those with released time for research. Institutions
are asked to EXCLUDE:
(a) instructional faculty in preclinical and clinical medicine
(b) administrative officers with titles such as dean of students, librarian,
registrar, coach, and the like, even though they may devote part of
their time to classroom instruction and may have faculty status,
(c) undergraduate or graduate students who assist in the instruction of
courses, but have titles such as teaching assistant, teaching fellow,
and the like
(d) faculty on leave without pay, and
(e) replacement faculty for faculty on sabbatical leave.
Full-time: faculty employed on a full-time basis
Part-time: faculty teaching less than two semesters, three quarters,
two trimesters, or two four-month sessions. Also includes adjuncts
and part-time instructors.
faculty: includes faculty who designate themselves as black, non-Hispanic;
American Indian or Alaskan native; Asian or Pacific Islander; or Hispanic.
Doctorate: includes such degrees as Doctor of Education, Doctor of
Juridical Science, Doctor of Public Health, and Doctor of Philosophy
degree in any field such as agronomy, food technology, education,
engineering, public administration, ophthalmology, or radiology.
First-professional: includes the fields of dentistry (DDS or DMD), medicine
(MD), optometry (OD), osteopathic medicine (DO), pharmacy (DPharm
or BPharm), podiatric medicine (DPM), veterinary medicine (DVM), chiropractic
(DC or DCM), law (JD) and theological professions (MDiv, MHL).
Terminal degree: the highest degree in a field: example, M. Arch (architecture) and MFA (master of fine arts).
|a.) Total number of instructional faculty
|b.) Total number who are members of minority groups
|c.) Total number who are women
|d.) Total number who are men
|e.) Total number who are nonresident aliens (international)
|f.) Total number with doctorate, first professional, or other terminal degree
|g.) Total number whose highest degree is a master's but not a terminal master's
|h.) Total number whose highest degree is a bachelor's
|i.) Total number whose highest degree is unknown or other (Note: Items f, g, h, and i must sum up to item a.)
I-2. Student to Faculty Ratio
Report the Fall 2001 ratio of full-time equivalent students (full-time plus
1/3 part time) to full-time equivalent instructional faculty (full
time plus 1/3 part time). In the ratio calculations, exclude both
faculty and students in stand-alone graduate or professional programs
such as medicine, law, veterinary, dentistry, social work, business,
or public health in which faculty teach virtually only graduate level
students. Do not count undergraduate or graduate student teaching
assistants as faculty.
Fall 2001 Student to Faculty ratio: 16 to 1.
I-3. Undergraduate Class Size
In the table below, please use the following definitions to report information
about the size of classes and class sections offered in the Fall 2001
Class Sections: A class section is an organized
course offered for credit, identified by discipline and number, meeting
at a stated time or times in a classroom or similar setting, and not
a subsection such as a laboratory or discussion session. Undergraduate
class sections are defined as any sections in which at least one degree-seeking
undergraduate student is enrolled for credit. Exclude distance
learning classes and noncredit classes and individual instruction
such as dissertation or thesis research, music instruction, or one-to-one
readings. Exclude students in independent study, co-operative programs,
internships, foreign language taped tutor sessions, practicums, and
all students in one-on-one classes. Each class section should be counted
only once and should not be duplicated because of course catalog cross-listings.
Class Subsections: A class subsection includes
any subsection of a course, such as laboratory, recitation, and discussion
subsections that are supplementary in nature and are scheduled to
meet separately from the lecture portion of the course. Undergraduate
subsections are defined as any subsections of courses in which degree-seeking
undergraduate students enrolled for credit. As above, exclude noncredit
classes and individual instruction such as dissertation or thesis
research, music instruction, or one-to-one readings. Each class subsection
should be counted only once and should not be duplicated because of
Using the above definitions, please report for each of the following class-size
intervals the number of class sections and class subsections
offered in Fall 2001. For example, a lecture class with 800 students
who met at another time in 40 separate labs with 20 students should
be counted once in the "100+" column in the class section column and
40 times under the "20-29" column of the class subsections table.
