NOTE: Ratios were calculated by dividing FTE students by FTE faculty. FTE students is based on credit hours produced by the primary department assignment, including department heads, as one FTE irrespective of teaching load. The FTE value of courses taught by part-time faculty is added to the full-time faculty count. Beginning in Fall 1994, the FTE of all full-time faculty teaching abroad was based on load and the student FTE was adjusted for team teaching across departments.

* The Mathematics Department's ratio in 1991-92 includes Computer Science. In Fall 1992 Computer Science became a separate department in the College of Integrated Science and Technology.

1991-92 through 1994-95 data for the former Geology & Geography Department has been recalculated into the Geology Department and the Center for Geographic Information Science.

Four education programs are combined into the School of Education for the Fall of 1995.
