An Analysis of Nova Southeastern University's Fall Term 1999 Faculty Matrix. Research and Planning Report.
MacFarland, Thomas W.
This report summarizes information from a faculty matrix which demonstrates the patterns of faculty employment at Nova Southeastern University (Florida). The University prepared a faculty matrix using data from different departments in 1997, and that report served as a basis for this report. In the fall term of 1999, Nova Southeastern University employed 1,463 faculty members. Of these faculty members, approximately 40% were full time, and the remainder were part time faculty. About 50% of all fall term 1999 course sections were taught by full-time faculty. The faculty matrix also shows that about two-thirds of all faculty received their highest degree since 1980 and less than 10% received their highest degree before 1970. Slightly less than 30% of all faculty earned their highest degree from Nova Southeastern University. It is also noted that more than 85% of all faculty members at the University have a terminal degree. (Contains 12 tables and 12 references.) (SLD)
