Faculty Compensation 1979-1980: Management Report.
Liebermann, Jo; Romoser, Richard C.
A survey of 38 community college districts, including all community colleges in Ohio as well as a representative nationwide sample, was conducted by Cuyahoga Community College (CCC) in December 1979 to solicit information on faculty compensation during 1979 and to determine CCC's relative position among similar institutions with regard to full-time faculty remuneration. Selected survey results, based upon the responses of 26 districts, indicate that the unweighted average compensation for all institutions was $24,066, of which $20,893 was salary. While this represents a 7.6% increase over 1978, the average increase registered by the National Consumer Price Index was 12.8%. Average compensation at CCC ($27,040) was 12.2% higher than the national norm, and the average salary ($22,301) was 6.7% higher. The range of contract days reported was from 157 to 195, and the average unweighted compensation amount per full-time contract day was $140, as compared to $150 at CCC. The survey report contains several data tables illustrating 1979-80 full-time faculty compensation at respondent institutions, a comparison of 1978 figures with 1979 data, changes in average compensation from 1977 to 1979, a comparison of 1979 average compensation at CCC with other institutions, and a comparison of CCC compensation with changes in the Consumer Price Index since 1971.
