Oops! U of Texas Faculty Productivity Not So Bad After All

Inside Higher Ed reports that the U of Texas-Austin – in response to a critical report sponsored by Gov. Perry on faculty productivity – produced its own report. Excerpt from the Inside Higher Ed article:

Measuring all instructors by the tuition revenue they bring in (on a per-credit analysis) and the outside research support they win, the faculty generated about about $658 million in revenue in 2009-10 (with about $400 million of that coming from external research). These faculty members were paid about $318 million in salary and benefits from state funds -- meaning that the state is gaining twice as much in revenue from its faculty as it puts in.
