Dental School Vacant Budgeted Faculty Positions, 2007-08

The annual turnover of dental school faculty creates a varying number of vacant budgeted positions at any given time. This survey describes the status and characteristics of these vacant faculty positions.

In addition, ADEA conducts an annual survey of dental educators to maintain a database on the size and characteristics of dental school faculty, including data on:

  • the distribution of full-time, part-time, and volunteer faculty
  • reasons for faculty separations, and
  • sources of new faculty.

This report focuses on findings from the 2007 survey (all years referenced in this report, unless otherwise noted, refer to the academic year).
