INTRODUCTION

PROFILES, an informational factbook about the University of Denver - its faculty, programs,
students, facilities, and finances - has been published every year since 1981.
Profiles began as a collaborative effort between the Offices of the Vice Chancellor for Business and
Financial Affairs and the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs. It now originates in the Office of
the Provost, but it relies on the cooperation and support of offices across the campus for its success.
PROFILES 2008-09 contains the following sections: General University, Admission & Financial
Aid, Enrollment, Courses & Credit Hours, Degrees, Faculty & Staff, and Financial Data. A brief
narrative at the beginning of each section describes the section's contents.
We strive for 100% accuracy because PROFILES is an official record of the University's activities
and serves as the source of data for external reporting as well as internal documentation and
planning. Occasionally we become aware of an error or ways to improve the integrity of previous
years' data. Each new edition of PROFILES reflects any changes we may have made during the
year; therefore, you should refer to the most recent edition not only for current but also for historical
information. If you find any apparent discrepancies in this edition, please let us know, and we will
gladly investigate and/or explain.
PROFILES is prepared by the Office of Institutional Research. My thanks to all of you on campus
who shared the task of gathering and providing the data which served as the foundation for this
document. Your efforts ensure that PROFILES keeps getting better each year.
We hope that you will use PROFILES often and that you will continue to give us your comments
and suggestions for its improvement.

*Non-need-based aid used to meet need is counted in this category. For example- a needy student earns a Chancellor's scholarship
based on his/her Admission Rating. This merit scholarship is used to meet his/her financial need, and therefore is counted as a needbased award. If the student did not have financial need, the scholarship would be counted in the non-need-based column.

UNIVERSITY STUDENT TO FACULTY RATIO
1. The Student Full-Time Equivalent equals full-time students plus part-time students equated to full-time. The
divisor of credit hours used to equate part-time students to full-time is 12 for undergraduate and 9 for graduate
and first-professional students.
2. The University assigns the following values in calculating the Faculty Full-Time Equivalent:
a. Full-Time Appointed Faculty = 1; AAUP data as of November 1st
b. Part-Time Appointed Faculty = 1/2;
c. Administrators with Faculty Rank, Adjunct and other Non-Appointed Part-Time Faculty = 1/4
d. Effective Fall 2003, the Graduate Teaching Assistants FTE is an actual calculated FTE provided by
Graduate Studies Office. For Fall 2004 that number was 90. For Fall 2005 that number was 106. For Fall
2006 that number is 79. For Fall 2007 that number is 69. For Fall 2008 that number is 87.
3. The Student/Faculty Ratio is determined by dividing the Student FTE by the Faculty FTE.
4. The students and faculty in pre-collegiate programs (English Language Center and the University Based Schools)
and the non-teaching faculty in Penrose Library are excluded.

UNDERGRADUATE STUDENT TO FACULTY RATIO – COMMON DATA SET
Ratio of full-time equivalent students (full-time plus 1/3 part time) to full-time equivalent instructional faculty (full time
plus 1/3 part time). In the ratio calculations, faculty and students in stand-alone graduate or professional programs such
as medicine, law, veterinary, dentistry, social work, business, or public health in which faculty teach virtually only
graduate-level students are excluded. Undergraduate or graduate student teaching assistants are not counted as faculty.

While pursuing a comprehensive liberal arts background in the Core Curriculum, Undergraduate Studies students also begin
substantive work in their major area of interest. Once students have declared a major, they are counted in the division where
that major resides. Undergraduate Studies students who have not yet declared a major and non-degree students enrolled in
traditional undergraduate courses are counted as Other Undergraduate Studies Students in census enrollment reports.
Undergraduate students who have interdivisional majors are counted in their primary unit rather than in the category of
Interdivisional Majors.

Persistence is defined as each one-year change in enrolled plus graduated students as a percentage of the
original entering class.

Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) reporting is done on first-time first-year (full-time)
students based on end-of-term census counts. Analyses of student persistence rates prepared by the Office of
Institutional Research are based on all first-year students including part-time students at the week three census.
Entering student cohorts for Fall 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2006 have been reduced because of IPEDS Allowable
Exclusions. Per IPEDS definitions; students may be removed from a cohort if they left the institution for one
of the following reasons: died or were totally and permanently disabled; to serve in the armed forces; to serve
with a foreign aid service of the federal government, such as the Peace Corps; or to serve on official church
missions.

(August) ceremonies.
The Graduation Rate measures only full-time, first-time degree-seeking undergraduate students.
*Fall 1998, Fall 2000 and Fall 2003 Graduation Rates have been adjusted to reflect a change in the end of term first-time first-year
cohort and the number of students graduating within six years. The Fall 1998 cohort has been changed to 761 students, the Fall
2000 cohort had been changed to 926 students (2 exclusions), and the Fall 2003 cohort has been changed to 1,010 students (1
exclusion).

INSTRUCTIONAL FACULTY
The following definition of full-time instructional faculty is used by the American Association of University Professors
(AAUP) in its annual Faculty Compensation Survey (the part time definitions are not used by AAUP). Instructional
Faculty is defined as those members of the instructional-research staff whose major regular assignment is instruction,
including those with released time for research. Use the chart below to determine inclusions and exclusions:




Instructional faculty in preclinical and clinical medicine, faculty who
are not paid (e.g., those who donate their services or are in the
military), or research-only faculty, post-doctoral fellows, or predoctoral fellows
Administrative officers with titles such as dean of students, librarian,
registrar, coach, and the like, even though they may devote part of
their time to classroom instruction and may have faculty status
Other administrators/staff who teach one or more non-clinical credit
courses even though they do not have faculty status
Undergraduate or graduate students who assist in the instruction of
courses, but have titles such as teaching assistant, teaching fellow,
and the like
Faculty on sabbatical or leave with pay
Faculty on leave without pay
Replacement faculty for faculty on sabbatical leave or leave with pay

sessions. Employees who are not considered full-time instructional faculty but who teach one or more non-clinical credit
courses may be counted as part-time faculty.
Minority faculty: includes faculty who designate themselves as black, non-Hispanic; American Indian or Alaska Native;
Asian or Pacific Islander; or Hispanic.
Doctorate: includes such degrees as Doctor of Education, Doctor of Juridical Science, Doctor of Public Health, and

*Writing Program began in Fall 2006
**In Fall 2004 & 2005 temporary Marsico and AHSS Core Lecturer positions were represented in this unit. They are now
represented in AH & SS.
These numbers conform to the AAUP reporting definitions. They include full-time appointed teaching faculty (tenure, tenure
track, and term appointments), including faculty who are on sabbatical leave. Faculty on leave-without-pay are excluded; if
their courses are being covered by a full-time replacement the replacement is counted. Department chairs are included; deans
are excluded. Vacant positions are excluded. English Language Center teachers are excluded since that is a pre-collegiate
program (11 in 2008-09). Penrose Librarians (19 in 2008-09) are excluded because they are not teaching faculty. Added to the
AAUP population above, this brings the 2008-09 total number of appointed full-time faculty to 616.

AVERAGE FACULTY SALARIES
Professor, Associate and Assistant
2004-05 through 2008-09

Average Faculty Salaries for Full-time Continuing Individuals
The Continuing Faculty population includes (for any given year) only those faculty members who were also here the previous
year. This excludes new hires and those who left at the end of the previous year. Where a faculty member received a promotion
in rank, he/she is reported under the former rank with the appropriate salary adjustment, so that the increases reflect the impact of
promotions.

Average Faculty Salaries for All Full-Time Appointed Faculty by Rank
The All Appointed Faculty population includes new hires who are not eligible for salary increases. The number of faculty per
rank varies from year to year due to incoming and departing faculty, as well as changes in rank and tenure. This gives rise to
differences between the averages of All Faculty vs. Continuing Individuals.

financial situation of the University.
Statement of Activities: Provides detailed financial data regarding the University's unrestricted
operating sources of revenues and types of expenses.
Fringe Benefit Expenditures: Provides detailed financial data regarding the University’s fringe
benefit expenditures for the past five years.
Endowment Fund Summary: A five year summary of the yearly investment performance and gifts
to the University’s endowment.
Sponsored Agreements: Grants and contracts issued to the University for the purpose of sponsored
research and development; instruction, and training.
Voluntary Giving and Alumni Information: Detailed summary of gifts to the University
including sources and distribution.
Please note: Throughout this section (except for the pages on voluntary giving) dollar amounts are
rounded to the nearest thousand and the last three zeros dropped; for example, $1,732,439 would

in the heading.
