Faculty and Staff

On this page:

Planning for faculty and staff needs is crucial to the success of the university.  It is important to balance the levels of staffing needed to achieve our goals with responsible use of our financial resources.   

Faculty and Staff Strength

Faculty and staff strength is measured in full-time equivalent (FTE) positions.  Faculty are further classified as ladder (faculty who are in a position that is part of a track toward tenure) or non-ladder (faculty in a position that is not eligible for tenure). 

The resource planning effort focuses specifically on employees in regular (PSR) state titles.  Faculty and staff strength is measured as of November 1 each year.

Faculty and Staff Hiring

Hiring is measured in full-time equivalent (FTE) positions over the fiscal year (July 1 to June 30).  An employee is considered to be hired based on the first date of their appointment. 

You will submit your summary plans for hiring over the next three years for both faculty (ladder and non-ladder) and staff and will also submit a detailed faculty hiring plan for the upcoming year.  In addition, you must complete a Faculty/Staff Hiring Form for each ladder faculty hire and any hire that has been approved to be centrally funded, in part or in full. 

Faculty and Staff Turnover

Turnover is measured in full-time equivalent (FTE) positions over the fiscal year (July 1 to June 30).  An employee is counted as turnover based on the last date of their appointment.

You will submit a summary of your expected turnover over the next three years for both faculty (ladder and non-ladder) and staff. 

Adjunct Faculty

Adjunct faculty are temporary service, and are thus considered separately from regular (PSR) faculty. 

You will submit projections for both adjunct faculty headcount and expenses.  No hiring or turnover plans are required.
