2.         Full-Time Faculty, 1999-2000:  In the following computation, include: 

1)   Full-time members of the school’s faculty, including administrative persons holding academic rank (or equivalent), whose salaries were at least in part in the school’s 1999-2000 budget;   

2)   instructional staff who gave full-time to the school, but whose salaries were paid from outside the school’s budget (e.g., full-time faculty paid from the president’s discretionary fund); and

3)   faculty on leave if at least partial salaries were paid during the leave.  “Visiting faculty,” should be included here if they were full-time during the term specified.  Persons who devoted only a portion of their time to instruction (including research and service), even though they held academic titles (e.g., a library science librarian who taught one course) should not be included here but among part-time faculty in question number three.  Do not include unfilled positions.


                                                            No. of full-time faculty


            Fall term                       (quarter, semester, etc.)            1999_____


            Winter term                  (quarter, semester, etc.)            1999_____


            Spring term                   (quarter, semester, etc.)            2000_____


            Summer term                (quarter, semester, etc.)            2000_____



3.         Part-time Faculty, 1999-2000:  In the following computation, part-time faculty should include individuals who have had the major share of the teaching responsibility for at least one credit course in the school.  If a doctoral student was engaged by the school to assume the major share of the teaching of a credit course, that person should also be considered part-time faculty for the purpose of this survey.  A faculty member with a joint appointment in the school should also be included here.  “Adjunct faculty” are often practicing librarians (including retired persons) who teach an occasional course for the school - they should also be counted here.


            The following should not be included as part-time faculty:  1) students who assist a       regular faculty in the teaching of a course; 2) a technician in charge of a laboratory session for such courses as cataloging or media production; 3) a librarian who instructs students in the use of the library; and 4) a librarian who provides internships for library   and information science students.


            In computing the full time equivalent (FTE) of part-time faculty, the institutional formula   for this purpose should be followed:

                                                                                                        No. of Part-time Faculty

                                                                                                     No. of Faculty       FTE

14.       Support Staff.  Definitions for the following computations:  By (a) Administrative       support is meant secretarial and other assistance provided to the dean, assistant dean,     etc., in the administration of the school.  By (b) Instructional support is meant clerical and other assistance provided to faculty in their course preparation and teaching.  By (c)            Research assistance is meant secretarial and other support provided to the faculty in their       research activity.  By (d) Media Services is meant assistance provided by media             technicians, graphic artists, and others in the production and use of non-print media.  By             (e) Library Personnel is meant librarians and library assistants who serve in the library             and information science library, whether their salaries are paid from the school’s budget   or from that of the central library.  Under (f) Other identify any support staff beyond      those listed above.


            An individual working full-time who has also enrolled in a course or two should be listed            in A, not in B below.


            If a full-time person divides his/her time between two or more of the above categories,   list that person only in appropriate part-time FTE categories.  (FTE should be computed      by equating hours worked by part-time employees to the hours worked by full-time      

employees, e.g., four part-time assistants each working 10 hours per week would be

equivalent to one full-time employee working 40 or 37.5 hours per week, hence one FTE).


            A.  Support staff provided to the school in its budget or by the central administration in 1999-2000 (exclusive of part-time student assistance)
