A Comparative Analysis of Faculty Work Load at II-A Universities.
Hill, W. Leland
A questionnaire was sent to the chief academic office of 20 universities to determine a fair and uniform workload for faculty at Central Missouri State University (CMSU). The mean undergraduate teaching load reported by the 18 responding institutions was 11.89 contact hours/week, as compared with 15.6 contact hours/week reported by CMSU faculty. Various methods for arriving at a workload determination are explained. It was concluded that CMSU does not appear to be significantly different from other institutions with respect to teaching load reduction or recognition. The main body of the document consists of the following appendices: a list of survey respondents, the teaching load questionnaire (CMSU), the questionnaire response summary, the teaching load questionnaire for Northeast Missouri State University, the California State University interim faculty workload formula, the faculty student credit hour report from Portland State University, and the summary of schools and colleges report on faculty student credit hours from Portland State University.
