FutureSTATE 2015 Progress Reports
RECRUIT AND RETAIN FACULTY
Initiative: Increase the proportion of undergraduate courses taught by tenured or tenure-track faculty.
- According to statistics provided by IHL, the percentage of courses taught by part-time faculty is 19.9% among research universities in the SREB region. The figures for the University of Mississippi and the University of Southern Mississippi are 20.5% and 19.1% respectively. At MSU the percentage of courses taught by part-time faculty is 20.1%, well within range of our peer institutions and so increasing the proportion taught by tenured or tenure-track is not an issue for the moment.
