Report includes summer, fall and spring semester data
Faculty headcounts are unduplicated within year; faculty with appointments in multiple departments are counted in the department where they devoted most effort.
Adjuncts and Grad Assistants are counted in each department where they had an appointment.
Person-year= 1 person working full time for one year
1.00 FTE = .75 person-years
