Institutional Types
  • Research university
  • Regional comprehensive university

  • Various kinds of for-profit colleges and
    universities (such as Strayer University,
    Sullivan University, University of Phoenix, etc.)

The Research University(Includes public, private
non-profit, and some private for-profit
institutions)
  • Divided into three categories
  • RU/VH -- RU with Very High Research Activity
  • e.g. Univ. of Kentucky
  • RU/H -- RU with High Research Activity
  • e.g., Auburn University
  • DRU -- Doctoral/RU Moderate Research
  • e.g., University of North Carolina at
    Charlotte
  • See Carnegie Foundation website for full list

  • The University of Kentucky is a Public
    Land-Grant Research University, which means that
    it has a significant obligation to serve the
    Commonwealth of Kentucky through its research,
    teaching, and service/extension.

Regional Comprehensive Universities
  • Also called Masters Colleges and Universities in
    the Carnegie classification system (e.g., Eastern
    KY Univ., Northern KY Univ., Morehead State
    Univ.)
  • Many evolved from Normal Schools opened at the
    turn of the 20th century, designed to train
    public school teachers
  • Provide a comprehensive set of bachelors and
    masters programs some are beginning to provide
    doctoral degrees, mostly jointly with a research
    institution
  • See Council on Postsecondary Education

5
The Independent or Private Liberal Arts College
  • Emphasis is solidly on undergraduate teaching
    (e.g., Transylvania University, Centre College,
    Georgetown College, Asbury University, etc.)
  • Most encourage and reward research, especially if
    the research involves undergraduates
  • Many have a small number of masters programs
  • Twenty private colleges in Kentucky. See
    Association of Independent Kentucky Colleges and
    Universities (AIKCU) website

Community Colleges
  • Also called Junior, Associates, or two-year
    colleges, but now usually called Community
    Colleges
  • Proliferated in the 1950s/60s to expand public
    access to higher education and to enrich
    cultural, civic, and entrepreneurial
    opportunities, especially in isolated areas
  • For public Associates Colleges in Kentucky, see
    KCTCS website

Course loads for faculty at different types of
institutions(traditional two-semester system)
  • Research universities average of 4 courses per
    year
  • Regional universities average of 7 courses per
    year
  • Small liberal arts college average of 8 courses
    per year
  • Community college average of 9 courses per year

  • KNOW THYSELF . . .
  • Are you a researcher who can teach?
  • Are you a teacher who can research?
  • Are you both at high level?
  • Are you a researcher who doesnt want to teach?
  • Are you a teacher who doesnt want to research?
  • Might this be a false dichotomy?
