Faculty data are based upon KUMC's "Faculty and Staff Dataset", which is prepared by Enterprise Analytics in cooperation with Faculty Affairs using data extracted from the HR PeopleSoft system on October 1st, and further validated and enhanced over a period of about one month.
Defining who to count as faculty for official reporting is non-trivial. Each faculty is counted according to their primary appointment. In general only those faculty paid in some fashion by the State of Kansas are included in the reported data. However, starting with the October 1, 2009 extract, volunteer faculty in Emergency Medicine at Kansas City, and those at Mid-America Cardiology and Mid-America Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgeons were added to the official counts. In December 2016, most Emergency Medicine faculty received full-time appointments, so the exception for that area was eliminated starting with the FY 2018 reporting cycle. Faculty whose HR job position is administrative are excluded from official counts.
Each report shows the last five fiscal years of data, including overall faculty counts, and information on full-time status, tenure status, gender, and ethnicity. Prior years are available upon request. If you are looking for IPEDS HR related data, please contact Enterprise Analytics.
