Frequently Asked Questions 3 4 load Nov 28 2006 1 Equot Equot 5 5quot Why can t we all move at once An allatonce shift would cause too much adjunctclass size impact because our faculty numbers are a bit below 239 vs 226 where they ought to be given our current FTE In the Provost s words we would pay a higher price than is prudent in terms of the effect on average class size if we were to all shift now and at once There is also concern about what the General Assembly may do with the 2nd year of the biennium budget While there likely will not be enough funding to move us all there is likely to be enough to move a portion of us How will we handle faculty evaluation for those teaching 3 4 SEC members have discussed this issue with the Provost who points out that the EVAL4 instrument is the appropriate vehicle for handling any possible changes in evaluation Departments would determine whether any changes need to be made and specify them in the EVAL 4 which is reviewed by the dean and by the Provost Will Dean s Office Grants go away Dean s Office Grants offered by the CLAS dean are drawn from a pot of money the Provost allocates to each dean called adjunct reserve in the amount of l LHE per faculty member The Provost gives the deans this money in case his projections of adjunct usage and that separate budget allocation have been incorrect But once the 34 shift begins the Provost will actually factor into the dean s budget the new increased requirement for adjunct faculty The discretionary money that the deans receive LSOB receives money in this fashion as well but its dean has not created the grant program that the CLAS dean has will still be there since adjunct funding will be normed However the provost might want to make changes to that model as more faculty shift toward the 34 so it is possible the amount of money available for Dean s Of ce Grants may be reduced in some fashion What will be the increase on class size In the rst year in Plan D for instance our average class size currently 2335 will grow to 2371 if we split the cost of the shift between adjunct and class size increases For subsequent years the class sizes will grow to 2400 2424 2445 and 2476 respectively for a total increase over the 5year period ofl4l or 6 Will the class size increase be evenly distributed across all classes Probably not Some classes such as ENGL 123 ULLC 223 and ULLC 100 capped at 19 will likely stay there But because of the way requirements are structured students cannot migrate to other classes since these are required courses instead courses such as these will likely use more of the adjunct augmentation to staff the required sections than increase in size Other types of courses such as majors courses might grow in size rather than add adjuncts It is also possible that we might be able to take a very few courses which can be taught effectively in large lecture sections say 150 and absorb the entire average class size increase either entirely or largely in them In the aggregate such a course of action could minimize any adverse effects which may derive from an increase in average class size What might the tradeoffs be in funds for travel equipment supplies faculty development activities etc if adjunct costs rise as they will under the various plans Our expectation is that the incremental dollars to pay adjuncts to support the 43
