                                    Department: ENGLISH

NOTE: Departments with multiple programs undergoing academic program review in the
same year should complete sections I through IV only once. Sections V and VI should be
completed for each program undergoing review.

Names of Individuals Preparing the Report: Karen Schneider, Elizabeth Oakes (067), Ted
Hovet (662), Alex Poole (547), Tom Hunley (scholarship), Lesa Dill (service), Walker Rutledge
(grants).

I. Departmental Context (Provide a description of the overall departmental context of the
program(s) being evaluated including a brief description of each program, track, option, minor,
etc., offered by the department.)

The English Department has two undergraduate majors and one graduate program. The
undergraduate majors are ENGLISH, which has two emphases, Literature (662L, 39 semester
hours) and Writing (662W, 38 semester hours), and ENGLISH AND ALLIED LANGUAGE
ARTS (547, 48 semester hours), which is designed for those who wish to teach English, grades
9-12, in Kentucky public schools.

The two tracks in the ENGLISH major share 20 hours of core courses including an Introduction
to English Studies (299), an English Language course (304), and several literature surveys. They
differ in possible electives and in their capstone courses. The ENGLISH AND ALLIED
LANGUAGE ARTS major shares the same core courses but has additional requirements in
English, including the 662L capstone course, and in Communication, Journalism, and Theatre (5
specific courses). To earn teacher certification, students in this major also have to take 27
additional hours (in Education, Psychology, and computer literacy) as well as 10 hours of student
teaching.

The M.A. in English (067, 30-33 semester hours) can be taken with a concentration in literature,
creative writing, rhetoric and composition, teaching, or Teaching English as a Second Language
(TESL). All five options may lead to Rank II/I for secondary teachers. All options require ENG
520 Introduction to Graduate Studies (or reading proficiency in a foreign language) plus 6 hours
in American Literature and 6 hours in British Literature. The remaining requirements vary
according to specialty. Those in the Creative Writing track are required to write a creative thesis
(6 hours); those in the Literature track may take two additional electives (6 hours) in lieu of
writing a thesis.

The department also offers two minors, English (359, 21 semester hours; emphasis on literature)
and Writing (496, 21 semester hours).


                                                                                                  1
Finally, the English department provides three General Education courses (ENG 100, ENG 200,
ENG 300) required for all WKU graduates.


II. Departmental Enrollment, Faculty, and Resource Data (With the exception of the table
under letter C, the departmental data below are provided by Institutional Research for the most
recent five-year period. Discuss significant characteristics of the department as revealed by the
data, paying particular attention to trends. For example, what trends in student credit hour
production, average class size, or reliance on part-time faculty are apparent, and how do you
account for them? Has the number of departmental faculty increased or decreased significantly,
and, if so, how do you explain this, and what impact has it had on programs in the department?
Please address each data element separately in your discussion.)

   A. Student Credit Hours Produced (SCHP)
                          Fall 2001 Fall 2002                      Fall 2003       Fall 2004       Fall 2005

  SCHP is calculated by multiplying the number of students enrolled in a course by the credit hours offered for the
  course. (e.g., 30 students enrolled in a three-credit hour course would be equivalent to 90 SCHP.) On-Campus
  includes courses taught at WKU’s main and south campuses. Extended Campus includes courses taught in
  Glasgow, Elizabethtown, and Owensboro. Distance Learning includes all other courses, including
  correspondence, Web, KVU, SPAN courses and courses taught at special locations.

Our SCHP have increased steadily for two reasons: an increase in university enrollments has
required that we increase the number of sections of required General Education courses in
English ((ENG 100, 200, and 300) [the major reason that our reliance on part time faculty has
increased at the same time]; and an increase in the number of English and Allied Language Arts
majors has required a commensurate increase in the number of sections of courses required for
that major. The ratio of hours produced on the main campus to the extended campuses to
distance learning has remained more or less the same in the five year period, which tends to
obscure the fact that the number of SCHP via distance learning has increased from 223 to 553, or
nearly 150%. The increase in the part time faculty share of the total hours is due to the fact that
the department has had to make do with fewer full time instructors (see table C) despite
increased enrollments, which necessitated greater reliance on part time. This issue is addressed at
length later in this document.

   B. Average Class Size for Lower Division, Upper Division, and Graduate Courses:
    Division        Fall 2001    Fall 2002     Fall 2003      Fall 2004   Fall 2005
    Lower                  21            21           22             22          22
                                                                                                                  2
    Upper                          20                20               22                22                21
    Graduate                       10                10                9                 8                10
   Lower division consists of 0-299 level courses, upper division consists of 300-499 level courses, and graduate
   courses consist of 500+ level courses. All 400G course counts are rolled up under their respective master 400-
   level section. Excludes applied music, coop, independent study, internship, correspondence, research, and
   maintaining matriculation courses.

   Fortunately, adding a number of full time instructors to our faculty (and additional use of part
   time instructors) has allowed us to maintain our class size at optimum for our intensive
   writing instruction at all levels.

   Since 2001, the ratio of professor to assistant professors has almost reversed, one indication
   that the complexion of the department has changed radically in the last five (to ten) years.
   Because our hiring and tenure expectations have changed over time, we now have a much
   more research oriented and productive faculty. To accommodate and enable this increase in
   scholarly productivity, we (Potter College) have moved into a 4/3 teaching load for active
   scholars.

Using the table below, provide a list of all current departmental faculty and an indication of
which faculty provide primary instructional support to each program. Add rows as necessary.

D. Student Credit Hours per Full Time Equivalent Faculty:

                             Fall 2001    Fall 2002     Fall 2003   Fall 2004     Fall 2005
       SCHP/FTEF                   249          241           263         263           258
                                                                                           4
       SCHP is calculated by multiplying the number of students enrolled in a course by the credit hours offered
       for the course. (e.g., 30 students enrolled in a three-credit hour course would be equivalent to 90 SCHP.)
       FTEF is calculated according to WORKLOAD definitions: 1 FTEF= 9 credit hours per semester for
       GFCOB, 15 credit hours per semester for CC and 12 credit hours per semester for all others.

Our SCHP have increased since Fall 2001, with the most notable jump occurring in Fall 2003.
As briefly explained above, this was due to four factors: 1) A steady overall increase in
university enrollments required that we offer more sections of our General Education offerings in
order to avoid a growing backlog of student demand. 2) In response to this demand, the
department has added four full time lines since 2001, all for Instructors, including one for the
Glasgow campus. Depending on available resources, we also hired a variable number of non-
renewable full time instructors. 3) An increase in our number of majors similarly required an
increase in the number of sections of required classes offered each year, to facilitate timely
graduation. 4) In response to our annual Program Review findings, we also added 3 semester
hours to our English major (an Introduction to English Studies [2 hours] and a capstone [1 hr]).

   E. FTE Part-time Faculty:

                                   Fall 2001        Fall 2002        Fall 2003        Fall 2004        Fall 2005
       Part-time FTEF                  14.25            14.75            17.75            20.25            21.75

Despite the addition of full time instructors, we could not keep up with the increased demand for
both General Education courses in English and for courses required for our majors without
employing more part time instructors (for General Education). As we had recently increased the
class size in all of our General Education offerings, doing so again was not a viable option. We
are already above the maximum enrollment for Writing classes recommended by our
professional organizations, including both the Modern Language Association and the
Association of Writing Programs.

   F. Student/Faculty Ratio:

                                   Fall 2001        Fall 2002        Fall 2003        Fall 2004        Fall 2005
       Student/Faculty
       Ratio                              16:1             15:1             17:1             17:1             16:1

Except for a temporary increase caused by the growing number of students (both non-majors and
majors), our S/F ration has remained stable because of the eventual addition of full time lines, the
number of available optional retirees, and greater use of part-time instructors.

   G. Total Budget and Expenditure Total:

                                    2001/02          2002/03          2003/04          2004/05        2005/06*
       Budget                    $2,624,321       $2,772,487       $2,832,146       $2,914,024       $2,964,818
       Expenditures              $2,633,387       $2,781,419       $2,724,166       $2,921,178       $3,245,959

The fact that expenditures exceed the budgeted funds reflects (I assume) the increased cost of
part time instruction and the renovation of classrooms to incorporate technology.
                                                                                                                    5
   H. Ratio of Total Expenditures/Student Credit Hour:

                                2001/02        2002/03      2003/-04        2004/05       2005/06*
       Expenditures/
       SCHP                         $118          $114           $103          $109            $119

   Here again I can only assume that this increase reflects the cost of additional technology.
   The department 2004-05 ratio is still below what was the Potter College ratio ($121) and
   significantly below that of the university ($150). We were not provided the College and
   University ratios for 2005-06.

   D. Participation of Faculty in Multiple Programs within the Department or Other
   Departments:

All of our full time faculty teach General Education English courses every semester in addition
to courses in their specialty disciplines.

      Wes Berry teaches two courses (Kentucky Literature and the Robert Penn Warren
       Seminar) cross-listed with the interdisciplinary Certificate in Kentucky Studies.
      Lou-Ann Crouther each semester teaches African-American literature, cross-listed with
       African-American Studies.
      Kate Green teaches Honors WOST 200 Introduction to Women’s Studies every other fall.
      Ted Hovet directs the Film Studies minor, an interdisciplinary program within Potter
       College; he also teaches three courses (all in the English department) in this minor every
       two years and another in American Studies, a team-taught (English, History, Political
       Science) interdisciplinary course offered each semester.
      Mary Ellen Miller occasionally teaches WOST 200 Introduction to Women’s Studies.
      Jane Olmsted holds a dual appointment in English and Women’s Studies; she is Director
       of Women Studies. Her duties are half administration, half faculty. Her teaching is
       divided between Women’s Studies and English, so she teaches only one section in the
       English department each semester.
      Karen Schneider teaches two Film Studies classes, both of which are in the English
       department.
      Deborah Logan and Nikolai Endres have taught in the Humanities Semester.
      Walker Rutledge teaches Honors Colloquia (.5 hours) each semester and an Honors
       literature class every fall.
      John Hagaman teaches in Gifted Studies and VAMPY
      All of Pat Taylor’s Drama courses (4) are cross-listed with Theatre. We offer one every
       semester.
      Various faculty (Deborah Logan, Elizabeth Oakes, Kelly Reames, Elizabeth Weston)
       occasionally teach classes cross-listed with Women’s Studies. We offer at least one such
       English course every semester.
      Various faculty teach Honors sections of our General Education offerings every semester;
       we currently offer five such sections in the fall and 4 in the spring.
      Various faculty teach in Gateway and Living Learning Community sections of ENG 100,
       some associated with Psychology or the College of Health and Human Services

   E. Number/Utilization of Part-time Faculty (Discuss the extent to which the department
   relies upon qualified part-time faculty.):

The department has historically relied too heavily on part-time instructors for two reasons: the
large number of sections of General Education we are required to provide (262 in 2003-04, 264
in 2004-05, 275 in 2005-06) and the need to staff the branch campuses (Owensboro, Glasgow,
Fort Knox/Elizabethtown, and sometimes Tompkinsville and Russellville), at which we have
almost no full time faculty (two, both in Glasgow). Our reliance has only increased (in regular
                                                                                                   8
and summer terms) due to the increased demand explained above. We have gradually increased
our number of full time continuing instructors and continue to ask for more. They have not only
proved invaluable in helping us to meet our General Education responsibilities, but have proved
fully engaged members of the department, volunteering to serve the department in various ways
(recruitment, technology support, and assessment) though not required to do so.

   F. Other Indicators of Faculty Quality (e.g. certification, licensure, professional in
   residence status, etc.):

Other indicators of faculty quality such as those specified above do not apply to the English
faculty, all of whom are qualified by way of graduate degree credentials.

   G. Special Qualifications of any Faculty Member (Full or Part Time) Whose
   Credentials do not Meet SACS Guidelines for the Level and Discipline They are
   Teaching (For a description of the SACS guidelines and examples of special qualifications,
   please refer to the Academic Program Review website
   http://www.wku.edu/Dept/Support/AcadAffairs/revundx.html):

All of our faculty, including part time and graduate students, now meet SACS guidelines for the
courses they teach. In 2004 we modified our Teaching Assistant training and teaching schedule
so that no graduate Teaching Assistant would be assigned a class until after s/he had completed
18 hours of graduate class work and had completed our mentoring program, which includes
classroom instruction, observation of experienced teachers, tutoring in the Writing Center,
regular meetings with a teaching mentor, and Teaching Associate certification from FaCET.

IV. Departmental Faculty Productivity (Please provide the information requested below and
discuss where appropriate.)

   A. Scholarship (Provide a brief narrative of the departmental faculty’s overall
      research/creative activity including any specific research initiatives or themes.
      Incorporate a statement of faculty totals for refereed publications, presentations, books,
      etc. Attach a listing of significant scholarly activity for each faculty including a
      description of the relevance and value of the work relative to the discipline, students,
      university, and/or community. Note: Do not simply attach faculty vitae.):

As a discipline, English consists of several sometimes overlapping subdisciplines: literature
(including drama), linguistics, English as a second language, creative writing, professional
writing, rhetoric and composition, and cultural studies (including film). Some of our faculty
devote their scholarly efforts to one area, but many of them do scholarly and creative work in
two mutually enriching fields. Two of our creative writers, for example, also have expertise in
composition & rhetoric, and publish in both fields. Several of our literature teachers are also
published creative writers (including, for example, optional retiree Joe Survant, recently
Kentucky Poet Laureate). And many of the faculty, being thoughtful and committed teachers, do
research and publish on pedagogy (the scholarship of teaching). Our drama instructor (and
several faculty in literature) work actively in theatre. In short, the faculty’s abundant scholarship

                                                                                                    9
and creative activity reflect a multidimensional engagement with our discipline and enhance their
teaching in myriad ways.

As a department, we authored ten books and edited thirteen more books between the years of
2001-2006. We also published sixty-five essays, sixteen book chapters, 117 poems, four short
stories, one novel excerpt, five works of creative nonfiction, thirty-four book reviews, and
twenty encyclopedia entries. Finally, we presented 135 papers at conferences and participated in
ninety-four public readings of creative work. See Appendix A for individual faculty’s specific
publications and scholarly activity.

   B. Service (Provide, in narrative form, a brief description of the departmental faculty’s
      overall service activity. Attach a listing of each faculty's service to the public, university,
      and professional organizations, presented in summary form. Include a description of the
      relevance and value of the work relative to the discipline, students, university, and/or
      community.):

The faculty in the Department of English served on an average of four committees each at the
department level with most serving on at least one regularly meeting committee above that level.
A majority of the members of the department are active in recruiting students to Western in
general and as English majors and minors in particular by regularly attending the various
recruiting fairs arranged by the university. We offer our students the opportunity to interact with
faculty beyond the classroom with activities such as the English Club; Sigma Tau Delta (English
Honor Society); writing and editing various undergraduate literary magazines; reading their
academic papers at the annual Undergraduate Literature Conference; and by participating in
various opportunities to present their creative work for fellow students and professors. All of
these activities are sponsored by faculty. The active service performed by the English
Department extends to the Robert Penn Warren Center and its yearly conference and regular
publication (the Robert Penn Warren Annual, copy edited by our faculty), the Kentucky Writing
Project designed as an outreach to our state’s high school writing teachers, the Jim Wayne
Miller Celebration of Writing, and numerous other workshops and hands-on activities designed
to enrich students experiences at Western and prepare them for their future vocations and
avocations. Our faculty provide active examples of commitment to the community, as evidenced
by our individual participation in a large number of presentations and projects devoted to
enriching life in South Central Kentucky and Bowling Green, including, for example, the three
volume Feminist Writers of Kentucky series, for which its editors (Olmsted and Oakes) won the
University’s Service Award. Our faculty boasts the state’s (former) Poet Laureate, whose duties
allowed him to be a prominent advocate of the literary arts throughout the Commonwealth. A
number of faculty contribute to the discipline at the national level in editorial work for journals,
as officers in academic organizations, as National Endowment for the Arts grant judges, as
readers for Advanced Placement and literary contests, as evaluators of national exams such as
the Praxis, and so forth. The English Department, with our broad spectrum of talents and our
tireless work ethic, serves as a model of active productivity to the discipline, the university, and
the community. See Appendix B for individuals’ service to the department/university, to the
discipline, and to the community at large.


                                                                                                   10
   C. Grant and Contract Activity (Provide a listing of proposals submitted/funded, etc., by
      departmental faculty.):

During the five-year period from August 2001 until August 2006, over half the faculty members
in the Department of English were successful recipients of grants. Twenty-two department
members garnered a total of 170 grants, valued at $849,292.78. As clearly as can be determined,
128 of the grants were internal, while 42 were from external sources. Principal external grantors
were the Department of Education (National Writing Project), the Kentucky Department of
Education, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Kentucky Arts Council, the
Kentucky Foundation for Women, the Memton Foundation, and the Kentucky Humanities
Council. What follows is a list of the faculty participants and the dates and amounts of their
