I-2. Student to Faculty Ratio

Report the Fall 2010 ratio of full-time equivalent students (full-time plus1/3 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 2010 Student to Faculty ratio: 11.3 to 1. (Based on 3868 students and 342 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 2010 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 laboratoryor discussion session.  Undergraduate class sections are defined as anysections in which at least one degree-seeking undergraduate student is enrolled for credit. Exclude distance learning classes and non-credit classes and individual instruction such as dissertations or thesis research, music instructions, 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 2010. 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.

J. Disciplinary areas of DEGREES CONFERRED

Degrees conferred between July 1, 2009 and June 30, 2010

For each of the following discipline areas, provide the percentage of diplomas/certificates, associate, and bachelor's degrees awarded. To determine the percentage, use majors, not headcount (e.g., students with one degree but a double major will be represented twice). Calculate the percentage from your institution's IPEDS Completions by using the sum of 1 st and 2 nd majors for each CIP code as the numerator and the sum of the Grand Total by 1st Majors and the Grand Total by 2 nd major as the denominator. If you prefer, you can compute the percentages using 1st majors only.
