Document Information

This research brief will focus on teaching and, in that context, explore faculty work at UT System institutions. Faculty have multiple roles and responsibilities — they teach, engage in scholarship/research, and provide public service. The brief will answer questions about how much time faculty members spend on instruction and instruction-related activities and about who is teaching undergraduate students and the lower-division courses which are critical to student engagement. Using data from the National Survey of Student Engagement, this brief provides evidence to the multiple interactions students have with faculty both inside and outside the classroom.
