SALARY STRUCTURES IN PUBLIC JUNIOR COLLEGES WHICH DO NOT HAVE THE USUAL ACADEMIC RANKS, 1965-66.
BAUMOL, WILLIAM; HEIM, PEGGY
ANALYZING SALARY DATA RECEIVED FROM 57 PUBLIC JUNIOR COLLEGES IN WHICH FACULTY MEMBERS DO NOT HAVE ACADEMIC RANKS, COMMITTEE Z OF THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF UNIVERSITY PROFESSORS FOUND THAT (1) IN ADVANCED CAREER STAGES, AVERAGE SALARY LEVELS AT LIBERAL ARTS COLLEGES WERE AT LEAST $1,600 HIGHER THAN THE EQUIVALENT AVERAGES IN THE JUNIOR COLLEGES, (2) THE AVERAGE SALARY DIFFERENTIAL, BOTH IN DOLLARS AND IN PERCENTAGES, BETWEEN INSTRUCTORS AND PROFESSORS WAS MUCH GREATER IN THE LIBERAL ARTS COLLEGES THAN IN THE JUNIOR COLLEGES, (3) IN THE EARLY STAGES OF THE FACULTY MEMBERS' CAREERS, SALARIES IN THE JUNIOR COLLEGES WERE APPROXIMATELY EQUAL TO THOSE IN PUBLIC AND PRIVATE INDEPENDENT LIBERAL ARTS COLLEGES, (4) SALARY DIFFERENCES IN THE MASTERS' AND DOCTORS' DEGREE LEVELS WERE LESS IN JUNIOR COLLEGES THAN IN LIBERAL ARTS COLLEGES, AND (5) THERE WAS CONSIDERABLE OVERLAPPING OF SALARY SCALES, WITH THE HIGHEST-PAYING JUNIOR COLLEGES OFFERING BETTER SALARIES THAN THE LOWEST LIBERAL ARTS COLLEGES. THE AUTHORS NOTE THE UNFAVORABLE COMPETITIVE POSITION OF THE JUNIOR COLLEGES AND RECOMMEND THAT JUNIOR COLLEGES IMPROVE THEIR SALARY SCHEDULES, ESPECIALLY FOR FACULTY MEMBERS WITH RELATIVELY LONG SERVICE. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN THE "AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF UNIVERSITY PROFESSORS BULLETIN," VOLUME 52, NUMBER 4, DECEMBER, 1966. (WO)
