MEMORANDUM

To: Dean, Director, or Chair

From: Timothy W. Sineath

 

Subj: Confidential Faculty Questionnaire

 

As we have done for the past several years the editors of the ALISE statistics are distributing the confidential part of the faculty survey that gathers salary and other faculty data along with the other parts of the ALISE statistical questionnaire. As in the past confidentiality will be preserved and the editors will forward all of the confidential data to me separate from the other parts of the survey. In order to preserve confidentiality, I am following the practice of the past in gathering salary and other faculty data. COA requires that this report be submitted along with the rest of the ALISE statistics as your report to COA but they do not require the salary figures. Only I will see these data. I have enclosed the form on which you are asked to record information that pertains to faculty. Please note that your report should show your anticipated full-time faculty strength on January 1, 2003. Guidelines for the completion of the report as well as a sample form are enclosed. Please read them carefully and respond accordingly.

 

Thank you for your continuing support of this project. ALISE now has published salary and other faculty data for more than a decade, and its value is evident to all who have occasion to use it. So it is essential that we have full reporting from all schools. This could not be done without your help, so thank you in advance for your assistance, and be assured that the confidentiality of these data will be preserved.

 

 

 

Editors Note:

 

Please remember to send the completed form to the survey editors at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in a separate envelope from the rest of the survey by Oct. 15, 2002. Also remember to send a separate copy directly to COA.

GUIDELINES FOR COMPLETING INDIVIDUAL FACULTY DATA FORM

 

FULL-TIME FACULTY

 

 

l. List academic rank and, when applicable, the title of each full-time faculty member on the faculty of your school expected on January 1, 2003. Begin with the deans, directors, or chairs. Then, arrange the rest of the faculty IN ORDER OF RANK: Professor, Associate Professor, Assistant Professor, Instructor, and Lecturer. If you use other titles, such as "senior tutor," for example, please use the most equivalent title from the above list.

 

Only FULL-TIME MEMBERS of the faculty, including administrative officers holding academic titles, should be included. The academic rank of deans, directors, assistant deans, etc., should be added after their executive or administrative titles (e.g., Dean/Professor). Part-time faculty. Library and information studies librarians, even thought they teach part-time or have academic title, should not be included. On the other hand, faculty who give their full time to the school, even though their salaries are paid from a different budget (e.g., full-time faculty paid from the president's discretionary fund or by an outside agency) should be included.

 

2. Salary. This figure should represent the actual gross salary of the individual for the appointment period shown in the next column of the form. Do not include fringe benefits in this figure. (Every faculty member's financial status is enhanced by institutional contributions to retirement funds, insurance, health benefits, etc., when some schools add these to the salary information requested here, the salary rates are distorted).

 

3. Appointment Period. This information should be given as either academic year (AY) (9-10 months) or fiscal year (FY) (11-12 months).

 

4. Tenure Status. For most schools the answer will be either yes or no (i.e., tenured (T) or not tenured (NT)). Schools using concepts such as "continuing appointment" or "security of appointment" should equate these with tenure.


5. Please indicate the sex of each faculty member.

 

6. Please indicate the actual degree, Ph.D., D.L.S., Ed.D., etc.

 

7. Indicate the discipline in which the highest degree has been earned.

 

 

8. Ethnic origin. For the purposes of this survey, five categories are used, as defined by the Department of Labor. Please use the following symbols:

 

AI - American Indian or Alaskan Native

AP - Asian or Pacific Islander

B - Black

H - Hispanic

W - White

 

The U.S. Department of Labor's definitions of each of these categories is attached.

 

9. Age category. Please use categories below. Base on the faculty member's age as of Jan 1, 2003.

 

 

Under 25 50-54

25-29 55-59

30-34 60-64

35-39 65-69

40-44 70 -

45-49

 

10. Year of appointment to the full-time faculty at your present LIS program. The year given should represent the point at which a faculty member became full-time even though that individual may have had a part-time appointment earlier. For deans and directors the date on which he or she became the school's chief executive officer is requested in addition to the date of appointment to present rank.

 

11. Year of appointment to present rank at this institution. This should be the academic/fiscal year that this appointment or promotion became effective. (e.g., if a person was appointed in January 2002 please list as2001/02 year. PLEASE NOTE: For schools that have "distinguished" professors or have multiple rank full professors, please use the date when promoted to full professor, not the date promoted to "Professor II" or "distinguished" professor.

DEPARTMENT OF LABOR DESIGNATIONS

 

 

The Department of Labor uses the following five categories: American Indian or Alaskan Native, Asian or Pacific Islander, Black, Hispanic, and White.

 

These categories have been defined as follows:

 

American Indian or Alaskan Native - A person having origins in any of the original peoples of North America, and who maintains cultural identification through tribal affiliations or community recognition.

 

Asian or Pacific Islander - A person having origins in any of the original peoples of the Far East, Southeast Asia, the Indian Subcontinent or the Pacific Islands. This area includes, for example, China, Japan, Korea, the Philippine Islands, and Samoa. The Indian Subcontinent takes in the countries of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Sikkim, and Bhutan.

 

Black, not of Hispanic Origin - A person having origins in any of the black racial groups of Africa.

 

Hispanic - A person of Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Central or South American, or other Spanish culture or origin, regardless of race. Only those persons from Central and South American countries who are of Spanish origin, descent, or culture should be included in this category. Persons from Brazil, Guyana, Surinam, or Trinidad, for example, would be classified according to their race and would not necessarily be included in the Hispanic category. In addition, the category does not include persons from Portugal, who should be classified according to race.

 

White, not of Hispanic Origin - A person having origins in any of the original peoples of Europe, North Africa, or the Middle East.
