The purpose of this study was to explore the status quo of faculty workforce in 330 newly-built undergraduate colleges in China through statistical analysis. We found that the student-teacher ratio is too high, the structure of the faculty is unreasonable, the level of internationalization needs to be enhanced, the training coverage is not wide enough. The construction of the faculty workforce should focus on five points: to strengthen the top-level design, to ensure a reasonable student-teacher ratio, to optimize the structure of faculty, to enhance the international level of faculty and make full use of faculty development centers.
