2.         Full-Time Faculty:  Fall 2002.  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 from the school’s budget as appropriate;

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 3.  Do not include unfilled positions.

3.         Part-time Faculty:  Fall, 2002.  In the following computation of part-time faculty include:

1)   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. 

2)   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:
