  • A higher percentage of female faculty is found among full-time non tenure-track faculty and adjuncts compared to tenured/tenure-track faculty.
  • Part-time/adjunct faculty has a higher percentage of white faculty compared to the other two types while tenured/tenure-track has a higher percentage of faculty who identify as Asian especially when compared to adjuncts.

In the following analyses comparisons will sometimes be made using the categories of STEM faculty as well as Health and Life Sciences (HLS) faculty. STEM faculty consists of those from the Schools of Engineering & Technology, Informatics, and Science. HLS faculty contains persons from the Schools of Nursing, Public Health, Dentistry, Physical Education & Tourism Management, and Health & Rehab Sciences. Faculty from the School of Medicine were not included in this survey upon request from the School. The HLS category is also limited in that the majors of Health Information Management (School of Informatics) and Healthcare Engineering Technology Management (School of Engineering & Technology) are considered Health and Life Sciences majors – but faculty teaching those majors could not be included, as faculty are not identified by department to protect confidentiality.
