A Faculty Load Nomograph.
Harris, William M.
Nomography, a branch of applied mathematics, deals with the graphical solution or nomograph of certain types of equations. This paper presents an example of nomography that has proven useful in calculating average weekly student contact hours (WSCH) per instructor, and that allows for rapid assessment of the maximum and minimum number of instructors needed to cover total departmental WSCH within a college's WSCH per full-time equivalent (FTE) instructor requirements. Using this nomograph, future staffing trends based on changes in faculty load requirements and increased or decreased departmental enrollments may be easily determined. While the nomograph contained in this document is designed for use within the Los Angeles Community College District, it can be quickly and easily adapted for use in other institutions which have WSCH/FTE ratios that differ from that of the Los Angeles Community College District.
