Each week, the Missourian highlights a government record that is available to the public. Open records help people keep government in check and help them better understand how government affects their lives. For a complete list of Show Me the Records, go to columbiamissourian.com/records.
The records: The most recent data tables showing the number of MU faculty members broken down by gender, rank and tenure status.
Why you’d want them: The records show the number of female faculty members who are tenured or on the tenured track compared to the number of male faculty members. It also shows whether these faculty members are professors, associate professors, or assistant professors.
Where you get the records: You can find an icon for either an Excel spreadsheet or a PDF document next to the line that reads: S4-C. Faculty listed by gender, rank, and tenure status from 2002-2011 is under the Faculty header at http://ir.missouri.edu/EmployeeData.html.
How much it will cost: The information is free.
