Faculty Resources is the third of the four categories that are calculated as a part of the overall Faith on View Christian College RankingsPrestige and Student Satisfaction & Success were previously published.Below is the methodological description of this category. For other aspects of the full study please consult the methodology page.

Faculty Resources

A base assumption of these rankings is that the faculty are  the core of an institution. Faculty who are well cared for and not over worked are more able to properly instruct and mentor students. This ranking category takes into account faculty salaries, course size, percent of faculty who are full-time, and student faculty ratios. Future rankings plan on adding to this area faculty teaching loads and percentage of faculty with terminal degrees.

There are six institutions that have ranked in the top 20 of all three categories published so far: 

Pepperdine University, Wheaton College, Calvin College, Thomas Aquinas College, Westmont College, and Providence College.

Thomas Aquinas has finished first in two categories.
