Additional documentation to support the submission:

-Number of academic divisions includes the College of Professional Studies, the College of Arts Humanities & Social Sciences, the College of Natural Resources & Sciences, and a category called “All University” for students who have not declared their major.
-Number of departments includes three non-traditional "departments" not listed at http://www.humboldt.edu/departments, because there are a small collection of courses managed directly by each of the three college deans with the course abbreviations AHSS (Art, History & Social Science- managed by CAHSS), GSP and SCI (Geospatial and Science- managed by CNRS), and AIE (American Indian Education- managed by CPS). Furthermore, some departments listed at http://www.humboldt.edu/departments are actually collapsed into the authority of other existing departments and do not technically stand alone as separate entities. These have not been included these in the count of departments here. Examples are that the Theatre Department technically houses Dance and Film courses; the Environmental Systems Masters Program requires courses in a combination of departments such as Environmental Resources Engineering, Geology, Statistics, and Economics; the Natural Resources Graduate Program requires courses in Environmental Science & Management, Fisheries, Forestry/Watershed/Wildland Sciences, and Wildlife (all of which are other standalone departments).
-STARS Coordinator Katie Koscielak worked exclusively with Office of Institutional Effectiveness (OIE) staff member Gay Hylton to retrieve the following included numbers: number of students enrolled for credit, FTE student enrollment, FTE students enrolled in distance education, and number of student residents on-site.
-To calculate the number of employees (both headcount and FTE), OIE provided the number of instructional staff and non-instructional staff in core part of campus, Sponsored Programs director Kacie Flynn provided the number of granted funded employees, and University Center Director Dave Nakamura provided number of UC staff. These figures were summed to calculate total campus employees. Faculty were excluded from grant funded metrics in an effort to minimize double counting (under the assumption that they were already included with the "instructional staff" metrics compiled by Gay Hylton). As a general rule in accordance with IPEDS reporting, students employed for various entities on campus were not counted as employees because they are already included in student counts.
-Housing and Residence Life staff member Samantha Pace provided the number of employees resident on-site and the number of other individuals resident on-site.
-Time frame: data reported here (and throughout our report as a default, unless specified otherwise) are representative of the previously complete Academic Year, which was 2018-2019. In accordance with best practices for student and employee counts at University Institutions and IPEDS reporting, HSU has included data from enrollment and payroll sums during Fall 2018 (or specifically from October 2018, where appropriate).
-FTE: Calculations and figures for full-time equivalent employees were given directly for instructional, non-instructional and UC staff (see attached supporting documents). FTE for grant funded staff was calculated by adding number of full time staff to the following calculate figure: number of part time workers multiplied by average hours worked (24.5 hours per week), and divided by 30 (30 was used to represent a normal "full time" schedule).
