2017-2018 Fact Book: Explanation of Faculty and Staff Terms

The tables and charts in this section pertain to counts of active employees at Miami University and are based on the data reported to IPEDS.

All counts are based upon an extract of active employees from the Banner system as of November 1 of the fall term (in this case, fall 2017). This is the date used for federal reporting to the IPEDS system and generally represents the 'high water mark' for employment for the academic year. Because the IPEDS Faculty and Staff reporting is intended to be a comprehensive look at the number and type of employees on campus, employees are counted only once, in their primary job. Other reports which focus on the number of teaching faculty, e.g., the Common Data Set, include everyone who teaches, regardless of whether it is their primary job.

Miami University reports data for three campuses: the main campus in Oxford and regional campuses in Hamilton and Middletown. A small number of employees at the Dolibois Center in Luxembourg are omitted from federal reporting and thus are not included here.
