That's a joke, by the way.

Yeah, that's the problem! We have been pulling 7% from our endowment and are having to figure out how to live within our means without just raising tuition again. Somehow the costs of administrators doesn't come up...

Catherine Johnson said...

Wow .... 7%.

oh boy

what a mess it is out there

I need to get a growth of administrators chart to add in there --- I bet I can find one....

It's pretty incredible, though, to think that tenure-track faculty are now only 10% of all professors????

I find that staggering.

Of course, I'm also somewhat surprised to see that even in 1975 full-time faculty made up only around 58% of all faculty----
