Summary

A series of graphs and tables are presented which summarize Los Angeles City College enrollment data collected each Fall from 1973 through 1980. For day classes only, information is presented concerning weekly student contact hours (WSCH), number of full-time equivalent (FTE) faculty, and resultant faculty workload (WSCH divided by FTE faculty). The first three tables delineate, on a year-to-year basis, the WSCH, number of FTE faculty, and faculty load for each of 32 departments. Three additional tables are then presented which provide the same information in an indexed format, using 1973 (or the first year for which information was available) as the base year. Linear graphs illustrating trends for the departments over the eight-year period are then presented. The final table summarizes annual WSCH, number of FTE faculty, and and faculty load for individual subject areas within the departments. The report concludes with three general observations on the data: (1) overall WSCH increased 20% from 1973 to 1975, but since 1975 has been below the 1973 level; (2) similarly faculty FTE rose from 1973 to 1975, and has decreased steadily since; and (3) faculty load rose 10% from 1973 to 1974, stayed even in 1975, dropped 15% in 1976, and has varied less than 5% since 1976.
