2 2 Faculty Profile Summary AU has almost 1,200 faculty, with a student-faculty ratio that ranks 8 th among SREB peers. Chart 1. The number of faculty is almost unchanged from The Colleges of Liberal Arts, Engineering, Agriculture, and Science & Mathematics have the largest faculties, reflecting the teaching requirement of the core curriculum as well as undergraduate enrollment by college. Chart 2 Almost 71 percent of AU full-time traditional faculty had tenure in 2005, the highest fraction among SREB peers. Chart 3. AU has a smaller fraction of contingent faculty than SREB peers. Chart 4 AU has a higher fraction of full professors now than 10 years ago (42 percent versus 34 percent). Chart 5 82 full professors have 30+ years of service – about 17 percent of all full professors. Chart 6. A little over 5 percent of the faculty are age 65 and over, and another 28 percent are age Auburn will need to recruit a significant number of faculty to replace retirees over the next decade. Chart 7

3 The percentage of women faculty has risen from 22 percent to almost 29 percent in the past decade. Since 43 percent of assistant professors are women, over time promotions should lead towards greater gender balance. Chart 8 Auburn’s faculty salaries are generally lower than the average of regional public research university peers. Chart 9 A listing of recently hired faculty shows that Auburn is attracting academics from solid, national institutions. Chart 10 Junior faculty are more satisfied with Auburn than faculty at peer institutions, according to a 2006 survey. Chart 11 3 Faculty Profile Summary (continued)
