Increase the teaching load for each professor X Reduce the number of courses offered. Increase class size and reduce the number of sections to be offered X Have students take an Internet-based course offered by another university X Shift courses to a summer session X You have been requested by the university’s administrative vice president (AVP) to construct budgets for other areas of operation (e.g., the library, grounds, dormitories, and maintenance). The AVP noted: “The most important resource of the university is its faculty. Now that you know the number of faculty needed, you can prepare the other budgets. Faculty members are indeed the key driver—without them we don’t operate.” Are faculty members a key driver in preparing budgets? Show less Yes No 4. No. While the number of faculty may be a key driver, the number of faculty is highly dependent on the number of students.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
