Team # 1018 -- Identify and Mitigate Major Administrative Burdens for Faculty
Eberly College of Science

September 2011


Faculty are required to do more and more administrative work resulting in fewer hours available to devote to their teaching and research. Our goal was to identify the major administrative time sinks for our faculty and to then find ways to reduce those administrative burdens. Faculty focus groups were held and then a survey was administered to all college faculty.
