Michigan: 53% More Administrators Than Faculty

Mark Perry:

The Chronicle of Higher Education released a report today “Great Colleges to Work for 2011” based on responses from nearly 44,000 people at 310 institutions. The University of Michigan-Ann Arbor made the list, and its profile included the institutional details displayed in the chart above: 9,652 full-time administrators and professionals vs. 6,305 full-time faculty and 1,260 part-time faculty. In other words, there are 53% more full-time administrators than full-time faculty. Is this evidence of “administrative blight.”
