Notes

  1. Ladder faculty counts are as of 9/1/2004 and 9/1/2019 and may vary from those published by individual Schools due to differences in when data are pulled.
  2. Ladder faculty with multiple appointments are counted once at the University level and once within each of their Schools. As such, the sum of the School counts will be greater than that of the University.
  3. Tenured faculty include the ranks of tenured Professor, tenured Professor in Practice (in the Graduate School of Design), and Professor in Residence.
  4. Tenure-track faculty include the ranks of Convertible Instructor, Assistant Professor, and Associate Professor.
  5. Clinical and hospital-affiliated faculty in the Medical and Dental Schools are listed in our full annual report.
