Surveys Show Minimal Boost to Faculty Salaries
May 4, 2004
Faculty salaries inched up 2.1 percent over last year according to two recent annual surveys. The American Association of University Professors and the College and University Professional Association for Human Resources released results of their separate surveys during the past three weeks. The 2.1 percent increase was the lowest in 30 years.
The CUPA-HR survey showed public institution faculty receiving the lowest increases, up just 1.4 percent this year. Independent institution faculty saw their average increases more than double their counterparts at public colleges, with an average 3.3 percent increase.
The modest faculty salary increases this year – mirrored by similar results from a survey of administrative staff – are due primarily to reduced state appropriations for higher education and decreased investment income at public and independent institutions, respectively.
