How FAU Prioritizes Its Money

UFF-FAU is pleased to present a new study commissioned from the Research Institute on Social and Economic Policy at Florida International University. The report, “How FAU Prioritizes Its Money,” locates disturbing trends in Florida Atlantic University’s personnel and salary-related budgeting priorities. Taken as a whole, these suggest a developing inability for the institution to adequately service the academic needs of its growing student body.

For example, between 2006 and 2012 Florida resident-students choosing to attend FAU are paying more than 60% more in tuition. At the same time the student-to-faculty ratio rose by an astounding 19% while administrative positions grew by 12%. In the same period faculty salaries have also decreased, making it more difficult to attract and retain capable instructional and research staff.

Results of the 2010-2011 Faculty Assessment of Administrators

March 23, 2011. This year’s evals are here!

(Please note that the verbal comments to the 2010-2011 Faculty Assessment of Administrators are available on a password-protected area of this website by clicking here. You should receive a password via email for access to this page. If you have not received a password contact UFF-FAU President James Tracy, at jamestrcy(at)yahoo.com.)

The following data present the results of the faculty assessment of administrators conducted at the end of the 2010-2011 academic year by UFF/FAU. This survey is an annual event intended to promote good leadership by providing administrators with regular, systematic feedback and by providing faculty with information about how administrators are doing. Administrators’ absolute scores are probably less useful than their position relative to others. For example, the tables do provide a useful comparison of how deans make personnel and salary decisions as perceived by the faculty. This year’s survey also included the Dean of the Graduate College and the Dean of Undergraduate Studies.

UFF also surveyed faculty with open-ended questions (“The university would be better served if…”). Because of the forthright nature of some of these written comments, they will only be made available in a password-protected area of the UFF-FAU website. The password will be distributed to faculty upon release of the survey results.

The total number of 2010-11 electronic surveys completed was 241. The results appear below in alphabetical order based on the administrator’s college affiliation. Upper-level administrators without a college affiliation appear toward the end of the page.
