FTEF is from the CDPS Course Section Report. This represents the FTEF used to teach courses in each subject and may not match the FAD report which summarizes FTEF by department of appointment. Therefore, the Student /Faculty Ratios indicate the actual instructional experience in each subject area.

The historical data is portrayed according to the current college configuration of departments.

CAHSS = College of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences
CNRS = College of Natural Resources & Sciences
CPS = College of Professional Studies
AU = All University (General Studies)
