Two-thirds of the faculty standing in front of college classrooms each day aren’t full-time or permanent professors. But getting information about the salaries of this army of adjuncts and about their campus working conditions has been difficult.

The MLA invites visitors to view historic information about staffing patterns at individual institutions of higher education. This information is drawn from surveys conducted by the Department of Education (DOE) and presents data from the DOE’s Integrated Postsecondary Education System (IPEDS) about the composition of the academic workforce at 4,246 colleges and universities in the United States. Users can look up statistics on part-time, full-time, tenure-track, and non-tenure-track instructors at each institution and compare data from 1995 and 2009. You can search for an institution and view the numbers and percentages of tenure-track, full-time non-tenure-track, and part-time faculty members at that institution in 1995 and in 2009.
