report number of instructional faculty members in each category for Fall 2004.Include faculty who are on your institution’s

The 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
(d) faculty on leave without pay, and
(e) replacement faculty for faculty on sabbatical leave.
(a) instructional faculty in preclinical and clinical
medicine, faculty who are not paid (e.g., those who donate their services or
are in the military), or research-only faculty, post-doctoral fellows, or predoctoral fellows
Include only if they teach one or more non-clinical credit
(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
Include if they teach one or more non-clinical credit

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

I-2. Student to Faculty Ratio
Report the Fall 2004 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 2004 Student to Faculty ratio:
21 to 1 based on
students and 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 2004 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.
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 cross-listings.
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 2004. 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.
