Measures of department and college/division activity and performance, fiscal year 2004-05 (and some later)

Includes over 85 measures of department and college/division activity. See below for a complete list.

  • Department and college/division measures (Excel)  Tabs in this file include...
    • Intro: start here. Overview of the measures, tips for using the file, and caveats.
    • MeasureDescrip: further descriptions of each measure.
    • DataDepts: listing of the measures for “standard” departments (those that offer degrees, have majors, teach courses, and have rostered faculty).
    • DataDeptsNonStnd: listing of the measures for other, “non-standard” departments that have some courses, majors, degrees, research expenditures, or rostered faculty. Some of these units are odd and do not make much sense in the measures (i.e. International Affairs, Program in Writing and Rhetoric, etc., plus institutes, Continuing Education, ROTC, etc.). Use CAUTION with these departments!
    • DataCollDiv: summary of the measures at the campus and college/division levels.
    • Others with tools for exploring and visualizing the data. See the DataDepts tab for instructions.

  • Note on opening the Excel file
    • The file is fairly large, so we recommend saving it to your computer if you plan to access it frequently.
    • Some features in the file use Excel macros and may produce a security warning when opening the file. If you receive a message asking to enable or disable macros, please select "Enable." If you receive a different message saying that the macros have been automatically disabled due to a high security setting, please see the Intro tab of the file for more information on how to correct this.

FOOTNOTES on groups of measures (GRP column)    
1 Degree counts by level measures (DegreesXXXX) are averages over the prior three fiscal years     
(2002-03 through 2004-05, per Delaware study methods), whereas degrees per tenure/tenure track    
faculty member measures (DegXXXX_TTT) come from only the most recent fiscal year available from     
IPEDS (2004-05).  See DeptMeasuresFY05.doc for cautions in using these data.     
2 Degrees per tenure/tenure track faculty member measures (DegXXXX_TTT) use degree counts from IPEDS     
for all institutions including UCB and faculty counts from the AAU Data Exchange faculty salary data     
collection. See DeptMeasuresFY05.doc for issues of matching faculty and degree counts.  Institutions with no degrees     
reported or no faculty reported are excluded from the calc.
