Faculty Workload (APDB reporting)

The faculty workload report shows all faculty assignments for the semester, all classes, and all assigned release times.

Faculty Workload reporting (via the Academic Planning Database (APDB) system) is required by the Chancellors Office for each state-supported semester, including Fall and Spring, as well as any summer and January intersession terms that have state-supported classes.  The process kicks off close to census each semester; the due dates for correcting and finalizing data each semester are provided to academic departments at the beginning of each academic year.

APDB reports are no longer publicly available, but there is a wealth of useful information about each CSU campus as well as a system-wide summary, on the Chancellor's website. Information available may include FTES and FTEF (full-time equivalent student and faculty data), SFR (student to faculty ratio) and average class size. APDB reporting is also used by the Chancellor’s Office to help determine if there is a need for additional classrooms.
