The California State University employs approximately 22,000 total faculty. The diverse composition of CSU faculty also reflects the general characteristics of California’s population. This section of the profile focuses primarily on the 11,300-plus full-time faculty in the CSU. More than 82 percent of the CSU full-time faculty are tenured or on the tenure track.
Faculty totals throughout this section exclude research fellows funded by external grants (21 full-time and 8 part-time) who were included as faculty in the totals in the Employees by Occupational Group sections.
2012 employee headcounts are affected by the change in the 2012 data source, timing of the fall snapshot, and selection criteria for the occupational groups.
Note: Percentages may not add to 100 percent because of rounding.
