2006 Faculty Time

Across disciplines, full-time faculty respondents devote about 60% of their time to teaching-related activities (e.g. time in class, grading), 15% of their time to research and scholarly activities, and 25% of their time to other activities (e.g., advising, service). The FSSE percentages closely mirror those derived from data collected nationally (Table 2).

The table below is an example how an institution can highlight a certain activity, in this case research, and compare percentage of time spent by discipline to the national average.
