Profiles

2010 – 2011

1
February 2011

To the University of Denver Community:

Profiles is a compilation of information about the University of Denver – its faculty, programs,
students, facilities, and finances – that has been published every year since 1981.

Profiles contains information organized in sections: General University, Admission, Financial Aid
and Scholarships, Enrollment, Persistence, Study Abroad, Courses and Credit Hours, Programs and
Degrees, Faculty and Staff, and Financial Data. A brief narrative introduces each section.
Additional information will be added as the information becomes available.

Because Profiles is an official record of the University’s activities and serves as the source of data
for external reporting as well as internal documentation and planning, accuracy is of crucial
importance. Occasionally, errors are discovered and adjustments are made in subsequent editions of
the publication. Each edition of Profiles reflects changes made during the year. Therefore, you
should refer to the most recent volume of Profiles for both current and historical data.

Profiles is prepared by the Office of Institutional Research. I thank our colleagues in that office and
all of you on campus who helped to gather the information presented in this document. If you have
any questions about data integrity or interpretation, please direct them to the Office of Institutional
Research at 303-871-2287.

We hope that you will find this edition of Profiles useful. Please let us know if you have any
suggestions for change or improvement.

I2 Fall 2010 Student to Faculty ratio 9 to 1 (based on 4,929 students


and 573 faculty).
I3 Undergraduate Class Size
In the table below, please use the following definitions to report information about the size of classes and
class sections offered in the Fall 2010 term.
Class Sections: A class section is an organized course offered for credit, identified by discipline and
number, meeting at a stated time or times in a classroom or similar setting, and not a subsection such as a
laboratory or discussion session. Undergraduate class sections are defined as any sections in which at least
one degree-seeking undergraduate student is enrolled for credit. Exclude distance learning classes and
noncredit classes and individual instruction such as dissertation or thesis research, music instruction, or one-
to-one readings. Exclude students in independent study, co-operative programs, internships, foreign
language taped tutor sessions, practicums, and all students in one-on-one classes. Each class section
should be counted only once and should not be duplicated because of course catalog cross-listings.

Class Subsections: A class subsection includes any subsection of a course, such as laboratory,
recitation, and discussion subsections that are supplementary in nature and are scheduled to meet
separately from the lecture portion of the course. Undergraduate subsections are defined as any
subsections of courses in which degree-seeking undergraduate students enrolled for credit. As above,
exclude noncredit classes and individual instruction such as dissertation or thesis research, music
instruction, or one-to-one readings. Each class subsection should be counted only once and should not be
duplicated because of cross-listings.
Using the above definitions, please report for each of the following class-size intervals the number of class
sections and class subsections offered in Fall 2010. For example, a lecture class with 800 students who met
at another time in 40 separate labs with 20 students should be counted once in the “100+” column in the
class section column and 40 times under the “20-29” column of the class subsections table.

J. DEGREES CONFERRED
J1 Degrees conferred between July 1, 2009 and June 30, 2010
J1 For each of the following discipline areas, provide the percentage of diplomas/certificates, associate, and bachelor’s degrees awarded. To
determine the percentage, use majors, not headcount (e.g., students with one degree but a double major will be represented twice).
Calculate the percentage from your institution’s IPEDS Completions by using the sum of 1st and 2nd majors for each CIP code as the
numerator and the sum of the Grand Total by 1st Majors and the Grand Total by 2nd major as the denominator. If you prefer, you can
compute the percentages using 1st majors only.

Financial Aid Summary: Fiscal Year 2010

DU awarded more than $36 million in need-based, institutionally funded scholarships and
grants in 2009-10.
Nearly 100% of full-time undergraduate students who were determined to have financial
need were awarded financial aid. The average aid awarded to these students was $28,195.
Between 6% and 20% of full-time first-year undergraduates at our peer institutions were Pell
grant recipients in 2008-09 (this is the most current information.) In comparison, 12% of
DU’s full-time first-year undergraduates were Pell grant recipients.
The average debt load (excluding parent loans) of undergraduate students in the 2009-10
graduating class was $25,578. The average undergraduate debt declined slightly from 2008-
09 to 2009-10.

*Non-need-based aid used to meet need is counted in this category. For example, a needy student earns a
Chancellor's scholarship based on his/her Admission Rating. This merit scholarship is used to meet his/her financial
need, and therefore is counted as a need-based award. If the student did not have financial need, the scholarship
would be counted in the non-need-based column.

Financial Aid Definitions

Collection year
The collection year is the academic year in which IPEDS data were collected. Most Institutional
Characteristics, Salaries, Fall Staff, Fall Enrollment, and Employees by Assigned Position data
are collected for the current year; Completions, 12-Month Enrollment, Student Financial Aid,
and Finance data collections cover the prior year.

Early decision
Early decision is a plan that allows students to apply and be notified of an admission decision
(and financial aid offer, if applicable) well in advance of the regular notification date. Applicants
agree to accept an offer of admission and, if admitted, to withdraw their applications from other
colleges. There are three possible decisions in response to such an application: admitted, denied,
or not admitted but forwarded for consideration with the regular applicant pool, without
prejudice.

Federal grants
Federal grants are transfers of money or property from the Federal government to the education
institution without a requirement to receive anything in return. These grants may take the form of
grants to the institutions to undertake research or they may be in the form of student financial
aid.

Federal grants (grants/educational assistance funds)


These are grants provided by federal agencies such as the U.S. Department of Education,
including Title IV Pell Grants and Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (SEOG). Also
includes need-based and merit-based educational assistance funds and training vouchers
provided from other federal agencies and/or federally-sponsored educational benefits programs,
including the Veteran's Administration, Department of Labor, and other federal agencies.

Federal Work-Study (FWS)


Federal Work-Study is a part-time work program awarding on- or off-campus jobs to students
who demonstrate financial need. FWS positions are primarily funded by the government, but are
also partially funded by the institution. FWS is awarded to eligible students by the college as part
of the student’s financial aid package. The maximum FWS award is based on the student’s
financial need, the number of hours the student is able to work, and the amount of FWS funding
available at the institution. This is a type of Title IV Aid, but is not considered grant aid to
students.

Fellowships
These are grants-in-aid and trainee stipends to graduate students. Fellowships do not include
funds for which services to the institution must be rendered, such as payments for teaching, or
loans.

Office of Institutional Research University of Denver


106
Financial aid
Financial aid is Federal Work Study, grants, loans to students (government and/or private),
assistantships, scholarships, fellowships, tuition waivers, tuition discounts, veteran's benefits,
employer aid (tuition reimbursement) and other monies (other than from relatives/friends)
provided to students to meet expenses. This excludes loans to parents.

Grants by state government


These are state monies awarded to the institution under student financial aid programs, including
the state portion of State Student Incentive Grants (SSIG).

Institutional grants (funded allowances)


Institutional grants (funded allowances) are scholarships and fellowships awarded to students
from institutional resources that are restricted to student aid. Private institutions generally report
these grants as allowances. If control over these resources passes to the student, the amount is
reported as an expense.

Institutional grants from restricted resources


These are institutional grants to students funded from restricted-expendable resources for student
aid, such as scholarships and fellowships.

Loans to students
Loans to students are any monies that must be repaid to the lending institution for which the
student is the designated borrower. Includes all Title IV subsidized and unsubsidized loans and
all institutionally- and privately-sponsored loans. Does not include PLUS and other loans made
directly to parents.

Local grants
These are local monies awarded to the institution under local government student aid programs.

Local grants (revenues)


These are sums of money or property bestowed on a postsecondary institution by a local
government. These amounts can be treated as an allowance, an agency transaction, or as a
student aid expense in the institution's General Purpose Financial Statements (GPFS) and are
reported differently depending on their treatment. Generally, however, private institutions report
these grants as allowances when applied to the student's account and as local grant revenues
when received.

Other expenses
Other expenses are the amount of money (estimated by the financial aid office) needed by a
student to cover expenses such as laundry, transportation, and entertainment.

Office of Institutional Research University of Denver


107
Other federal grants
These are federal monies awarded to the institution under federal government student aid
programs, such as Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (SEOG), DHHS training grants
(aid portion only), State Student Incentive Grants (SSIG), and other federal student aid programs.
Pell grants are not included in this classification. Note: if the federal government selects the
student recipients and simply transmits the funds to the institution for disbursement to the
student, the amounts are not considered as revenues and subsequently there are no discounts and
allowances or scholarships and fellowships expenses. If the funds are made available to the
institution for selection of student recipients, then the amounts received are considered as
nonoperating revenues and subsequently as discounts and allowances or scholarships and
fellowships expenses.

Scholarships
These are grants-in-aid, trainee stipends, tuition and required fee waivers, prizes or other
monetary awards given to undergraduate students.

Scholarships and fellowships


Scholarships and fellowships are outright grants-in-aid, trainee stipends, tuition and fee waivers,
and prizes awarded to students by the institution, including Pell grants. Awards to undergraduate
students are most commonly referred to as "scholarships" and those to graduate students as
"fellowships." These awards do not require the performance of services while a student (such as
teaching) or subsequently as a result of the scholarship or fellowship. The term does not include
loans to students (subject to repayment), College Work-Study Program (CWS), or awards
granted because of faculty or staff status. Also not included are awards to students where the
selection of the student recipient is not made by the institution.

Scholarships and fellowships (expenses)


This is the portion of scholarships and fellowships granted that exceeds the amount applied to
institutional charges such as tuition and fees or room and board. The amount reported as expense
excludes allowances and discounts. The FASB survey uses the term "net grants in aid to
students" rather than "scholarships and fellowships."

State and local government grants


These are state and local monies awarded to the institution under state and local student aid
programs, including the state portion of State Student Incentives Grants (SSIG).

State and local grants


These are grant monies provided by the state such as Leveraging Educational Assistance
Partnerships (LEAP) (formerly SSIG's); merit scholarships provided by the state; and tuition and
fee waivers for which the institution was reimbursed by a state agency. Local government grants
include scholarships or gift-aid awarded directly to the student.

Notes:
While pursuing a comprehensive liberal arts background in the Core Curriculum, Undergraduate Studies
students also begin substantive work in their major area of interest. Once students have declared a
major, they are counted in the division where that major resides. Undergraduate Studies students who
have not yet declared a major and non-degree students enrolled in traditional undergraduate courses are
counted as Other Undergraduate Studies Students in census enrollment reports.
For Fall 2010, Daniels College of Business began using a secondary admission progcess for its
undergraduate students, thus explaining the decrease in DCB enrollment and the creation of the
Undeclared Business Interest field.

Persistence Summary: Fall 2009 to Fall 2010

Persistence rates are based on the first-time, full-time, degree seeking cohort of students who
enter each fall. The most recent one-year persistence rate is 87.9% based on week three
census dates.
There are no differences in the one-year persistence rates based on gender, geographic
region, or financial aid need status.
Persistence rates have remained steady during the past five years, with no statistically
significant changes in the one-year persistence rate for the first-time, full-time, degree
seeking cohort.
Not surprisingly, students who are on probation as a result of earning low G.P.A.s (less than
2.0) are much less likely to persist than students who earn G.P.A.s of 3.0 or greater.

Notes:
Cohorts represented here were taken at end of term, as reported to IPEDS.
Persistence is defined as each one-year change in enrolled plus graduated students as a percentage of the
original entering class.
Entering student cohorts for Fall 2004-2006 have been reduced because of IPEDS Allowable Exclusions.
Per IPEDS definitions; students may be removed from a cohort if they left the institution for one of the
following reasons: died or were totally and permanently disabled; to serve in the armed forces; to serve with
a foreign aid service of the federal government, such as the Peace Corps; or to serve on official church
missions. The Fall 2004 cohort has been changed to 1,124 (3 exclusions), and the Fall 2005 cohort has been
changed to 1,089 (1 exclusion).

The DU-Iliff Joint Ph.D. Program

In September 1981, Iliff and the University of Denver jointly inaugurated a program leading to the Doctor
of Philosophy in Religious and Theological Studies. Although planned and staffed initially by the
faculties from Iliff and the University of Denver's Department of Religious Studies, other faculty from the
graduate Schools of Professional Psychology, Social Work and International Studies and from the
departments of Anthropology, History, Sociology, Political Science, Psychology and Philosophy at the
University are currently involved in the program.

In 1999-2000 the Joint Ph.D. Program was revised to make it more responsive to contemporary
movements in theological and religious studies. It features a combination of three required courses for all
students in the program and a great deal of flexibility and permeability between the subject areas making
up specialized concentrations in the study of religion and theology. The revised structure gives
educational breadth as well as opportunity for specialization.

The program is administered by the Joint Ph.D. Committee. This committee is composed of faculty from
both institutions, along with elected students, and is charged with the formulation and general oversight of
the academic policies and procedures for the program. The director serves as the chief administrative
officer of the program. The Joint Ph.D. office is located on the Iliff campus.

Through the rich resources at Iliff and the University of Denver, facilities are available for persons
interested in disciplines ranging from those associated with pastoral ministries to highly specialized
studies in the major areas of religious and theological scholarship. The holdings of the libraries at Iliff and
the University sustain various research interests. Internet resources are increasingly available for
instruction and research.

The faculties of both institutions have long standing traditions of interest in providing stimulating
teaching, both in seminars and lectures. Moreover, the faculties have established distinguished records in
research and publication. They participate in the national societies of their various disciplines. Research
grants have come frequently to individual faculty members, in turn providing exciting opportunities for
students. Faculty members focus on providing a solid foundation for novice scholars in order that they
may become independent and innovative thinkers in their own right.

In applying for admission, students are required to identify one concentration or combination of
concentrations in which to focus their studies. The Advisory Committees ordinarily consist of two faculty
members from the chosen concentration, and must have one faculty member identified with another
concentration. Students' concentrations, as interpreted by their Advisory Committees, will determine
coursework distribution, areas for comprehensive examinations, and, of course, domains for eventual
dissertation work.

There are currently four concentrations in the Joint Ph.D. Program: Biblical Interpretation; Religion and
Psychological Studies; Religion and Social Change; and Theology, Philosophy, and Cultural Theory.
Additionally, students are required to participate in the Colloquium in Biblical Interpretation (2 or 3 credit
hours) at least once during the coursework phase of their degree program. The Colloquium addresses key
themes, issues, or topics in the field of Biblical Studies.

Notes:
*Writing Program began in Fall 2006.
**In Fall 2004 and 2005 temporary Marsico and Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences Core Lecturer positions were represented in this unit. They are now represented in
Arts and Humanities or Social Sciences.
These numbers conform to the AAUP reporting definitions. They include full-time appointed teaching faculty (tenure, tenure track, and term appointments), including
faculty who are on sabbatical leave. Faculty on leave-without-pay are excluded; if their courses are being covered by a full-time replacement the replacement is counted.
Department chairs are included; deans are excluded. Vacant positions are excluded. English Language Center teachers are excluded since that is a pre-collegiate program
(12 in 2009-10). Penrose Librarians (18 in 2009-10) are excluded because they are not teaching faculty. Added to the AAUP population above, this brings the 2009-10
total number of appointed full-time faculty to 641.
