Student-faculty interaction has received extensive attention from public, private, and non-academic organizations as the interaction has an effect on student learning and outcomes. As the number of non-traditional faculty increases, potentially the amount of time available to interact with students decreases. The purpose of this quantitative study was to explore differences in faculty's total time spent with undergraduate students in the traditional classroom by faculty demographics and institutional characteristics. A 14-item survey collected data from 245 participants across the United States using a snowball sampling procedure. Using multinomial logit modeling, 30 tests of differences were conducted revealing statistically significant differences for 73.3% of the variables. The results indicated education leaders need further investigations into the methods that address student-faculty interaction and the leadership that guides the interaction.
