I-1. Please report number of instructional faculty members in each category for Fall 2023.


The following definitions 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.

Full-time instructional faculty: faculty employed on a full-time basis for instruction (including those with released
time for research)

Part-time instructional faculty: Adjuncts and other instructors being paid solely for part-time classroom instruction.
Also includes full-time faculty teaching less than two semesters, three quarters,
two trimesters, or two four-month sessions. Employees who are not considered full-time
instructional faculty but who teach one or more non-clinical credit courses may be
counted as part-time faculty.

Minority faculty: includes faculty who designate themselves as black, non-Hispanic; American Indian
or Alaska Native; Asian or Pacific Islander; or Hispanic.

Doctorate: includes such degrees as Doctor of Philosophy, Doctor of Education, Doctor of Juridical
Science, and Doctor of Public Health in any field such as arts, sciences, education,
engineering, business, and public administration. Also includes terminal degrees formerly
designated as “first professional,” including dentistry (DDS or DMD), medicine (MD),
optometry (OD), osteopathic medicine (DO), pharmacy (DPhram or BPharm), podiatric
medicine (DPM), veterinary medicine (DVM), chiropractic (DC or DCM) or law (JD).


Terminal master’s degree:a master’s degree that is considered the highest degree in a field: example, M. Arch
( in architecture) and MFA (master of fine arts in art or theater).

I-2. Student to Faculty Ratio

Report the Fall 2023 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 2023 Student to Faculty ratio: 20 to 1 (based on 10,302 FTE students taught and 508 FTE faculty).


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 2023 term.

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.
