American Association of Univ. Professors, Washington, DC.
This report discusses the general state of faculty compensations, and considers in some detail the prospects and special financial problems of the nation's public institutions. The discussion centers on: (1) the decline in the rate of increase in compensation; (2) the effects of inflation on ranks and types of institution, with special emphasis on public colleges and universities; (3) sources of funds for public higher education; (4) rising enrollments and costs of public higher education; and (5) long-term prospects in view of cutbacks by state and city governments. The rest of the report is devoted to tables with data on average and minimum compensation scales, lists of institutions and how they pay and rate in terms of compensation, average dollar and percentage increases in average compensation, weighted average compensation by rank, type of institution, and type of control. The appendix contains tables indicating; (1) index grades of compensation; (2) grades of average compensation and numbers of faculty by rank 1969-70; (3) average compensation for full-time faculty; (4) average salary for full-time faculty; (5) full-time faculty compensation per student equivalent; and (6) number of full-time faculty members of individual institutions with professional rank.
