Faculty Distribution by Employment Status and Gender, Fall 2012

† Some of the departments classified as LLE for HDS-1 have been reclassified as CLS for HDS-2. Any comparisons are made using only departments classified as LLE for both HDS-1 and HDS-2.
Note: For the disciplines included in both HDS-1 and HDS-2, only those departments included in the 2007–08 sample are included in the 2012 sample. Thus, these numbers cannot reflect data for any departments that may have been created in the interim.
** Proportion of part-time faculty in Table 3 will not necessarily match that from Table 2 since some part-time faculty members are tenured or tenure-track. In Table 2, these are included in the tenured or tenure-track categories. In every case, the proportion shown as part-time in Table 2 should be less than or equal to that shown in Table 3.
