An evaluation of the faculty workload in Pennsylvania's state-owned higher education institutions is presented. Tabular and text data show: faculty workload in terms of full-time equivalent (FTE) student/faculty instruction ratio, student credit hours, student-contact hours, and credit-hour cost; relationship of average full credit-hour cost per student credit-hour to average FTE faculty member student credit-hour production; percent of total credit-hour production by programs and rank order of programs; actual state-owned colleges and university FTE instructional faculty counts compared with criterion FTE faculty counts that are based on FTE student/FTE faculty ratios falling at the medium; indicated numerical and percentage reduction in FTE faculty size under three different FTE-student, FTE-faculty ratios; and FTE-faculty/FTE student ratios by levels and overall for each state-owned institution.
