“SIZE MATTERS”:

SHOULD THE ENGLISH DEPARTMENT BE THE COLLEGE OF LANGUAGE, LITERATURE, & LITERACY?

english is the largest department at ksu
ENGLISH IS THE LARGEST DEPARTMENT AT KSU
  • Comparison of Full-time Faculty
faculty size if we were a college in fall 2004
FACULTY SIZE IF WE WERE A COLLEGE IN FALL 2004
  • UNIVERSITY COLLEGE 21
  • COLLEGE OF THE ARTS 33
  • COLLEGE OF LLL 46
  • COLLEGE OF EDUCATION 51
  • COLLEGE OF H & HS 63
  • COLLEGE OF BUSINESS 98
  • COLLEGE OF SCIENCE & MATH 109
  • COLLEGE OF H & SS 116
what if foreign languages joined the lll college
WHAT IF FOREIGN LANGUAGES JOINED THE LLL COLLEGE?
  • Faculty size would be 60, not 46.
  • That would make LLL bigger than Education (51) and slightly smaller than Health & Human Services (63).
  • The remaining College of Humanities & Social Sciences would then be 102, making it the next to the largest college, which would be Science & Math (109).
english is the largest generator of weighted semester hours
ENGLISH IS THE LARGEST GENERATOR OF WEIGHTED SEMESTER HOURS
  • Fiscal Year Weighted Credit Hour ReportBy College and DepartmentFY 2005
  • In weighted hours, each lower-division credit hour is multiplied by 1, upper-division is multiplied by 1.5, graduate-level is multiplied by 2. The state uses this system of weighted hours to determine funding.
weighted credit hours if we were a college
WEIGHTED CREDIT HOURS IF WE WERE A COLLEGE
  • UNIVERSITY COLLEGE 10,370
  • COLLEGE OF ARTS 24,971
  • H & HS 41,032
  • LLL 45,535
  • EDUCATION 48,583
  • BUSINESS 118,224
  • SCIENCE & MATH 120,433
  • H & SS 134,216
large increase in declared majors
LARGE INCREASE IN DECLARED MAJORS
  • Growth of English and English Education Majors
  • We may not have the most majors or the largest increase in majors in the College, but the total number of majors in all of our programs is 575 and the average increase in our programs is 100%.
but english and hss are largely underfunded
BUT ENGLISH AND HSS ARE LARGELY UNDERFUNDED
  • DISTRIBUTION OF WEIGHTED CREDIT HOURS BY COLLEGE: FY 2004
instructional expenses weighted credit hours if we were a college
INSTRUCTIONAL EXPENSES/WEIGHTED CREDIT HOURS IF WE WERE A COLLEGE
  • ARTS $133
  • HEALTH & HS $117
  • UNIVERSITY $102
  • EDUCATION $88
  • BUSINESS $82
  • LLL $82
  • SCIENCE & MATH $75
  • HUMANITIES & SS $70
why compare these two
WHY COMPARE THESE TWO?
  • KSU has just become a second tier institution, joining Georgia Southern and Valdosta State.
  • The two are somewhat close in size: KSU has 17,961 students, Georgia Southern has 16,100, Valdosta has 10,400.
  • And Georgia Southern has a Fact Book online as we do (Valdosta does not).
size of faculty and majors
SIZE OF FACULTY AND MAJORS
  • Georgia Southern: 22 literature professors + 57 writing professors = 79 professors
  • KSU has 46 professors who teach literature, writing, and English Education (placed in the College of Education at Georgia Southern).
  • Georgia Southern: 115 English majors + 42 Writing/Linguistics majors + 23 MA majors = 180
  • KSU: 266 English majors + 212 English Ed + 97 MAPW = 575
structure and curriculum
STRUCTURE AND CURRICULUM
  • Georgia Southern: 1 department of literature and philosophy, 1 department of writing and linguistics, English education is separate
  • KSU: 1 department that houses writing, literature, and English education
  • Georgia Southern: 38 ENGL major courses, 16 WRIT & 11 LING major courses, 16 M.A. ENGL courses = 81
  • KSU: 40 ENGL major courses + 29 MAPW = 69 (English Ed excluded)
structure
STRUCTURE
  • English can remain unified by belonging to the same college and sharing a mission that focuses upon language, literature, literacy.
  • Yet at the same time each unit can focus upon its own distinct curricular direction.
  • So there could be in the college the 3 departments of literature, writing & language, and English education.
managing size
MANAGING SIZE

Three departments in one college can help manage size

  • for meetings
  • for administrative work (i.e., the English chair must write 46 annual reviews, the chairs of Special Ed and Human Services write only 6)
to increase resources
TO INCREASE RESOURCES

Colleges, as opposed to departments, receive

  • Business managers
  • Technology specialists
  • Summer revenue
information sources
INFORMATION SOURCES
  • KSU Fact Book online and Institututional Research website
  • KSU undergraduate and graduate catalogs
  • Georgia Southern University website
