(LEO members are counted only once on all three campuses, based on the appointing department group of their LEO job title. For those with an appointment in a LEO job title in more than one appointing department group, they are counted in the appointing department group and job title where the university indicator = 1. Counts also include those with only overload appointments in a LEO job title and those on leave at the time of the snapshot.)
