Faculty Workload Report, 2006
Nevada System of Higher Education
Faculty workload can be separated into two distinct areas: instructional workload (i.e. in-class workload) and out-of-classroom activities. This indicates that at the universities, the state college, and the community colleges the role of full-time faculty extends well beyond classroom instruction. To varying degrees, faculty workload is impacted by requirements to engage in research, develop professionally, participate in public service, as well as contribute to the commitment of shared governance, advise students, and develop new curriculum and programs. Depending upon institutional type and mission, the workload of faculty is further influenced by numerous factors occurring both inside and outside of the classroom. Board policy provides that in the fall of every even-numbered year, the Chancellor's Office shall compile a System report on faculty workloads at Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) institutions. Faculty workload is collected from the campuses in two parts: (1) in-class instructional data originating from workload databases and validated by department heads; and (2) out-of-classroom data collected at the individual faculty or department level and validated by department heads. This report presents the faculty workload data for 2006. Appendices include: (1) Faculty Workload Guidelines (Title 4, Chapter 3, Section 3); (2) Instructional Workload Form, University & State College; (3) Out-of-Classroom Activities Form, University & State College; (4) Instructional Workload Form, Community College; (5) Out-of-Classroom Activities Form, Community Colleges; (6) Out-of-Classroom Definitions, University & State College; and (7) Out-of-Classroom Definitions, Community Colleges.
