Academic Unit Profiles

Academic units may use this profile for historical and comparative trend analysis regarding student enrollment, credit hours production, faculty hiring, revenue generation, instructional cost and research initiatives.

Please use the links below to view either the university's executive summary profile or an individual unit's profile. For best viewing results, please use Internet Explorer as your browser.

At the beginning of 2003, in its effort of dealing with reduced funding and expanded enrollment, the University's Board of Visitors (BOV) requested that the university do a thorough examination of its academic programs regarding their effectiveness in order to detect programs that might not be as effective as others. The BOV also suggested a transparent university administrative operation by making revenue, expenditure and cost measures of the academic units available from the Web.

The profile you are about to browse is the result of President Merten's effort in building a "profile" to tell everyone what we are all about. It is also the President's desire to employ this profile as a decision-making support tool for the individual unit. The profiles cover five major areas:

  1. Unit Overview
  2. Student Enrollment Trends
  3. Faculty & Staff
  4. Degrees Conferred, Revenue & Expenditure
  5. Effectiveness Ratios

The profiles are updated three times a year during the fiscal year: in late Oct., after fall census data are available; in late July the following year, after finance and fiscal books are closed for the fiscal year; and in early Sept., after annual student FTE and degree conferred data are finalized.

Notes:

1. Enrollment and Faculty Data for Provost, University Life and INTO Mason are counted in Total Academic Units, but they are not listed separately.

2. From year 2013-14, all data is mapped using the new SPGIA and CHSS structure, except financial data which is still following the old structure, related ratio is also affected for SPGIA and CHSS.

3. From year 2014-15, we have enrollment and faculty data for Korea, but in Unit Profiles we report data for US Campus only.
