IPEDS FT Faculty New Hires

Full-time Instructional Faculty New Hires Demographics and Appointment Types

Description

This workbook presents the number and percentage of full-time instructional faculty new hires by appointment type in degree-granting nonprofit institutions participating in Title IV federal financial aid programs in the United States (50 states and DC). Several filters are available on the DRILLDOWN tab to limit the results to particular types of institutions (e.g., R1: Doctoral Institutions); these filters will also be applied to all other tabs.

The workbook displays all full-time employee new hires in the IPEDS categories of “Primarily Instructional” and “Instructional/Research/Public Service,” including both medical and nonmedical, regardless of whether they are formally designated as “faculty.” New hires include instructional staff who were hired for full-time employment for the first time, or after a break in service, from November 1 of the prior year through October 1 of the current year. Prior to 2016, reporting on new hires was optional and used the four-month period of July 1 through October 31 to define a new hire.

Definitions

AAUP Institutional Categories.

AAUP institutional categories are assigned to institutions by the AAUP Research Office based on the following institutional characteristics:

Category I (Doctoral) .  Institutions characterized by a significant level and breadth of activity in doctoral-level education, as measured by the number of doctorate recipients and the diversity in doctoral programs. Institutions in this category grant a minimum of 30 doctorate degrees annually, from at least three distinct programs.

Category IIA (Master's). Institutions characterized by diverse postbaccalaureate programs (including first professional) but not engaged in significant doctoral-level education. Institutions in this category grant a minimum of fifty postbaccalaureate degrees annually, from at least three distinct programs. Awards of postbaccalaureate certificates are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

Category IIB (Baccalaureate). Institutions characterized by their primary emphasis on undergraduate baccalaureate-level education. Institutions in this category grant a minimum of fifty bachelor’s degrees annually, from at least three distinct programs, and bachelor’s and higher degrees make up at least 50 percent of total degrees awarded.

Category III (Associate's with Academic Ranks). Institutions characterized by a significant emphasis on undergraduate associate’s degree education. Institutions in this category grant a minimum of fifty associate’s degrees annually. Associate’s degrees make up at least 50 percent, and bachelor’s and higher degrees make up less than 50 percent, of total degrees and certificates awarded.

Category IV (Associate's without Academic Ranks) .  Institutions that meet the criteria for "Associate's" (Category III), but do not utilize standard academic ranks. An institution that refers to all faculty members as "instructors" or "lecturers" but does not distinguish among them on the basis of standard ranks should be included in this category. However, if an institution utilizes another ranking scheme that is analogous to the standard ranks, it can be included in Category I, II, or III as appropriate.

Note: The AAUP institutional category assigned to an institution may change after meeting the criteria for another category for three consecutive years; exceptions are made on a case-by-case basis.
