Faculty & Staff

The U-M produces counts of faculty using two different methods.

  • Method 1: Instructional faculty appointments, whether paid or unpaid (the latter are referred to as “dry appointments”), are tallied ahead of any additional appointments these people may hold.
  • Method 2: All appointments are based on each person’s primary paid appointment.
  • Note: Counts of staff always use Method 2.

Method 1 produces a higher unduplicated total faculty count than method 2.
