Survey of Art Department Chairs & Deans: Outlook for Departmental Budget & Hiring

  • ID: 5311239

1 of 5

This report looks closely at trends in the budgets and hiring practices and plans of college and university art departments.  The report helps to answer questions such as: will spending rise or fall for adjunct faculty? For professional development? Studio budgets? IT infrastructure? Distance learning training? Will art departments fare better or worse than other academic departments?  What has been the trend in these areas in the recent past and will these trends change or prevail? What is the outlook for income accrual from student art charges?  How much of the department budget is discretionary and controlled by the art department itself?  Are budget surpluses carried over year to year?  If so to what extent?

In addition to budget issues, the report provides extensive data on faculty and support staff, on retirements and buyouts, and hiring plans.

Just a few of the report’s many findings are that:

  • 20% of departments sampled expected a significant fall in their budgets of at least 10% of the upcoming year.
  • 53.33% of respondents do not expect any changes in their use of adjunct and clinical faculty for the next year.
  • Canadian art departments enjoyed much less direct control of art department expenditures than did their counterparts in the USA.
  • Nearly 57% of respondents said that budget surpluses could not be carried over to the next academic year.

Data in the 72-page report is broken out by many variables related to the individual survey participants and their institutions including but not limited to size of the art department measured by faculty size, and by number of art majors,  host country, tuition level, public/private status, and college type or Carnegie class.
