At the Brink; Preliminary Report on the Economic Status of the Profession, 1970-71.
American Association of Univ. Professors, Washington, DC.
Part I of this report on the economic status of college and university professors discusses the experience of the year 1969-70 in terms of rate of increase in compensation which, taking real purchasing power into account, was only 2 percent; this part also presents statistical data and an analysis of salary increases by type of institution and type of control. Part II deals with the dimensions of the crisis facing the profession and the choices it poses. The third part discusses the nature of the AAUP survey and its rating scales. The ratings were revised in 1969, and some criticism of these revised ratings is included. The bulk of the report consists of statistical tables on salaries and salary increases in various types of institutions. (AF)
