Faculty Salaries at Delta College. Research Report.
Evans, John W.
In 1989, a study was conducted of faculty salaries at California's San Joaquin Delta Community College (SJDCC). Salary results were compared with community college districts in the State of California, with two specially selected subgroups of colleges comparable to SJDCC, and with all of California's major public and private four-year postsecondary institutions. Study findings included the following: (1) SJDCC's maximum salary for faculty without a doctoral degree ranked fourth among the 70 community college districts in the state and was 12% higher than the state average; (2) when compared with two groups of comparable colleges, SJDCC's minimum and maximum salaries were the highest in both groups; (3) when the salaries of these two comparable groups were adjusted for the cost-of-living differences in the districts, Delta's percentage advantage widened; (4) when compared with the average salary of assistant professors in all of California's major public and private institutions, SJDCC's average faculty salary of $48,603 ranked first, and when compared with associate professors at the same institutions, SJDCC ranked third; (5) SJDCC's average faculty salary was 45% higher than the average assistant professor salary in the California State University system and 31% greater than the average assistant professor salary in the University of California system; (6) when fringe benefits were translated into their dollar value, SJDCC ranked slightly below average; and (7) SJDCC was slightly above average in productivity/cost effectiveness.
