UW-Madison does not track students by instructional modality (e.g., enrolled exclusively in distance learning) but exclusively distance learning programs only made up approximately 6% of total credit hours in FY18. Student FTE data reported above includes all students in for-credit programs, including those who may be taking some or all courses through distance learning.

Employee counts reported above include physicians who have a dual appointment as both faculty at the School of Medicine and Public Health and as physicians with UW Health. Employee counts also include employees who work primarily at off-site agricultural research stations. Both of these employee classes were included as many perform some work activities on the main campus, and all are supported by many functions housed on the main campus (e.g., orientation, training, HR). Furthermore, employee tracking processes changed since our target baseline year (FY07) and including all employees allows consistent comparison to baseline.
