MacFarland, Thomas W.
This report summarizes information from the faculty matrix prepared to demonstrate the patterns of faculty employment at Nova Southeastern University (Florida) in 1997. In the fall term of 1997, Nova Southeastern University employed 1,360 faculty members. Of these faculty members, approximately 39% were full time, and the remainder were part time. Overall, 32% of the faculty were full-time faculty members teaching in their assigned academic center. About 50% of all fall term 1999 course sections were taught by full-time faculty. The faculty matrix also shows that about 75% of all faculty received their highest degree since 1980 and approximately 5% received their highest degree before 1970. Approximately 25% of all faculty earned their highest degree from Nova Southeastern University. An appendix contains eight tables of faculty information. (SLD)
