4.3 Proposed Future Academic Program
Georgia State University currently offers comprehensive degree programs that include:
No significant change in the number of programs or degrees offered is anticipated.
Table 4.6 summarizes future projections for the college’s students, staff and faculty. This table summarizes the total count of workstations (WS) occupied by staff/faculty. This includes a factor to convert part-time staff as well as students who work, into a “full” work station equivalent.
Table 4.6 outlines faculty and staff projections by academic and administrative units.
The 1997 Master Plan identified a target faculty-to-student (FTE) ratio of 12:1 by 2007. The current ratio is 18.3:1. Based on budget constraints, the consulting team assumed that 12:1 is not realistic. However, for the university to reach its goal as a leading research institution, faculty/student ratio improvements are needed. Therefore, a target ratio of 15.9:1 by 2015 was established and used as a basis for the projections in Table 4.6.
